  7. 7. Kingston Point Rail Trail Engineering and Environmental Assessment Engineering & Environmental Assessment • Existing right-of-way encroachments are minimal • Minimal environmental impacts and no remediation necessary • Stormwater is a concern since the corridor is the low point; can be addressed with natural swales along the trail • Structures along the corridor remain in good condition • There are several at-grade crossings where improvements will be needed to ensure safe conditions • Safety concerns include the length of the tunnel, some steep slopes and some crossings • Vegetative barriers provide screening for the trail
