OK---the Dutchess Rail Trail construction
has started and the completed section is
wonderful---but why has construction seemingly
I was out riding Friday/Saturday/Sunday just
this past weekend (07-19/20-2008) and was
pleasantly surprised at just how many people
were using the Rail Trail---even though the
completed section is only some 1.7-1.8 miles
My comments/questions are these: all pertaining
to why hasn't construction on the Rail Trail been
extended to these Rail Trail sections:
1. from Lake Walton Rd to Rte 376 (Fishkill
2. from Rte 376 (Fishkill Plains) to Didell Rd
3. from Didell Rd to Maloney Rd
4. from Maloney Rd to Titusville Rd
5. from Titusville Rd to Rte 55
None of the above intersections require a bridge
or pedestrian tunnel---so why hasn't construction
Summer is the time for laying down pavement---
how much does it cost to put down an eight-foot
wide strip of asphalt on the Rail Trail?
I wonder how many other interested people in
Dutchess County would also like answers to these

I'd like to know too. It's probably BS politics, they ruin everything.
I'm up at the northern end of the town of Poughkeepsie.
Oh well, there's always the Highland trail....

When i go through the old train tracks I see these sighns about the dutchess trail. It's been a year..(possibly longer) all I see are rocks, condoms, trees, and nothing.

What IS going on with this project? There is PLENTY of call for it. Rail trails are a blast. I'll just keep using the one in Highland for now .....

Used the rail trail for the 1st time last week. Enjoyed and went for a 2nd walk a day later. Enjoyed the walk thru woods I didn't know were there, waterbodies that I didn't know were there. Hopefully they will continue work on the project.
