We just clicked ‘SUBMIT’ on a sizable New York Consolidated Funding Application for construction of the major infrastructural elements of the Phase 1 trail, which will extend two miles upstream along the Wynantskill starting from the Burden Preserve. This work will include two gorgeous bridges spanning the Wynantskill.
The photo above is a preliminary concept rendering for one of these bridges, created by Kevin Hasselwander of Chazen Companies. If this funding is awarded, our community and region could be hiking or skiing this trail as early as December 2018.
Please keep your fingers crossed, and send out all the positive energy that you can!
Special thanks to Laura Welles, Kristina Younger, Joseph Durkin, and John Johanson for the collaborative grant writing whirlwind.
