The town will erect "No Parking" signs along part of Route 85 in an effort to prevent people from parking on the road to access nearby water-filled quarries.

A Framingham teenager drowned in one of the quarries recently. At the request of Police Chief Thomas O'Loughlin, selectmen have approved placing signs on the road from the Interstate 495 ramps to the Hopkinton border. The signs will indicate that vehicles can be towed if parked on the road.
