WEST MARLBOROUGH: Funding to stabilize a roadbank

West Marlborough Township has received a $228,120 grant from the state to stabilize the steep drop-off down to Buck Run along Rokeby Road at Richard Wilson Drive, a problem that residents have been concerned about for years.
At the July 5 township meeting, Supervisor Hugh Lofting said the stabilization project will get under way by the end of the summer. The grant is part of a state program targeting dirt, gravel and low-volume roads.
Residents have repeatedly alerted the supervisors that the northern edge of Rokeby Road is eroding away and crumbling into the creek. The sheer drop-off down to the creek is now marked by traffic cones and barriers.

There is a sheer drop-off between the northern edge of Rokeby Road and Buck Run.
