Empire State Trail
Construction is scheduled to begin this week on Harry Howard Avenue for a shared-use bike/walking path. Please use extra caution if driving on Harry Howard Avenue.
The project is part of the Empire State Trail, which will be a continuous 750-mile route spanning the state from New York City to Canada and Buffalo to Albany. The section of the trail will connect the Dugway from Mill Street to Greenport and make it easier to walk or bike to Hudson City Schools as well as Mill Street and Charles Williams Park.
Uility poles will be moved to make space for the dedicated bike/walk lane. Next, hydrants and catch basins will be relocated. Then construction of a 12 foot wide multi-use path. There will be intermittant lane closures during this period.
This project builds on the 2012 Safe-Routes-To-Schools plan. It also improves accessibility.
