Connecting the Dots . . .

or the historic sites.

Yesterday, after Gossips picked up Bill Williams' news about the public information meeting on March 22 regarding the roundabout planned for the intersection of Route 9G and Route 23, a reader directed me to a January 5 press release from Governor Andrew Cuomo which speaks about the roundabout. The following is quoted from that press release:
Governor Cuomo has been a strong supporter of the Hudson River SkyWalk project, a 1.8-mile scenic pedestrian trail that crosses the Hudson River linking the Olana State Historic Site in the Town of Greenport to the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in the Village of Catskill. In 2017, the state supported phase 2 of this project. As part of the third phase the Hudson River SkyWalk project, the state will reconstruct the current intersection of Route 23 and Route 9G in Columbia Count into a pedestrian and bicycle friendly roundabout with a direct connection to [the] Olana State Historic Site. Further, the state's Empire State Trail, currently under construction, will provide pedestrian and bicycle friendly travel north from Olana and the Rip Van Winkle Bridge directly into the City of Hudson.  
It's all good.
