Trail construction to commence Spring 2022

Construction of the first phase of the Urban Trail network will begin this spring with an initial 0.55 mile stretch from West Cedar Street in the Town of Poughkeepsie to the Dutchess Rail Trail at Parker Avenue (State Route 9G) in the City of Poughkeepsie.  Completion of this section is anticipated by the end of this year.

The vision for the Urban Trail is maximizing connections and access for those who walk, run, or bicycle, whether for transportation, recreation, or other purposes. This expansion of the region's trail system will link Poughkeepsie’s northern neighborhoods with key destinations, such as Marist College, Hudson Heritage, the Hudson River waterfront, the Walkway Over the Hudson, the W.R.S. Dutchess Rail Trail, the Fall Kill Creek, and a variety of nearby parks and local businesses.
