Grant to ease Met State parking, access


The city will receive $280,500 in grants from the state’s Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs to help improve access to open-space portions of the former Metropolitan State Hospital site. The funds will be used to construct a 46-bay parking lot, a paved walkway from the parking lot, parking for 20 bicycles, and an information kiosk containing space for environmental education displays. The property, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is bordered on the north by Concord Avenue in Lexington and on the south by Trapelo Road in Waltham.
