WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Hopefully, residents are enjoying the new bicycle-pedestrian trail.   They may have to pay for it down the road.   Town Manager Bob Menicocci Monday told the Select Board that the Massachusetts Department of Transportation is passing along $1.3 million in overruns for the project, which created a recreational path from near the intersection of Syndicate Road and North Street (Route 7) east to the Spruces Park on Main Street (Route 2).   The town has the resources to pay the tab from its Chapter 90 account without new local tax revenue, Menicocci told the board. But paying for the overage would put a dent in the town's long-rage capital plans
