Walkway Over The Hudson
- Bike Trail, Idea About to Come to Fruition, Park
Best of Hudson Valley Winners:
About: After 16 years of promoting the idea of creating a pedestrian path across the Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge, the folks at Walkway Over the Hudson -- with substantial support from the Dyson Foundation and several state and federal agencies -- have finally begun construction on the project. Slated to be completed in time for the summer 2009 Hudson-Fulton Quadricentennial celebrations, the 25-foot-wide walkway eventually will link hiking trails on both sides of the Hudson -- a boon for both the Valley's outdoor enthusiasts and the tourism industry.
