While waiting for the first major snowstorm of 2019, the Bedford DPW Grounds crew took advantage of good weather in mid-January to assemble and install a new bike shelter at Bedford High School.
With the polar vortex with below-0 wind chills scheduled just days after the shelter’s installation, has stood as a hint of nicer weather to come.
The 12’ x 8’ structure was set near the main entrance to cover bicycles during inclement weather, with the hope that more students will take the opportunity to bike to school or other activities on the campus. Installed recently, new racks have been set on the concrete pad to secure the bikes.
The project was funded through the Town’s Community Preservation Act.
