Here is a summary of the Phase 2 from www.newtonma.gov/parkprojects:

Phase 2 of the Marty Sender Greenway Restoration Project will upgrade 1200-feet of the existing, degraded, shared-use path. The goal is to complete accessibility and safety improvements over the entirety of this 3700-foot-long section of the Blue Heron Trail that passes through parkland owned by the City of Newton. The phase 2 project will improve and enhance the hydrologic connection between the river and the wetlands within the park, expand wildlife habitat and vegetated wetland, and reestablish natural ebb and flow within the flood plain. The city is also planning to replace a sewer line through portions of the limit of work for Phase 2 in the Spring and Summer of 2022. The Parks, Recreation & Culture Department will be coordinating design of the boardwalk very closely with the city’s DPW and their consultant to ensure both infrastructure and pathway can coexist.
