It seems that the materials for the ramp at Promenade Hill (dubbed "the ramp of least resistance") have been ordered, and all is in readiness to begin construction, but we have no better idea today of what the ramp will look like at the entrance to Hudson's most historic park than we did two years ago when this solution for providing universal access to Promenade Hill was first proposed. The engineering drawing shown below, which Gossips has published many times before, is all there is.
Promenade Hill and the area leading up to it are included in a National Register historic district and a locally designated historic district. It will be interesting to see if the Historic Preservation Commission has anything to say about the ramp and its design.
