Public Meeting Held In Utica On Remsen-Lake Placid Travel Corridor
The third of four public hearings on management of the Remsen-Lake Placid Travel Corridor was held at the State Office Building in Utica today.
Raymond Hessinger of the New York State Department of Transportation says they're considering two proposals.
Hessinger says the Adirondack Railway Preservation Society wants to renovate and expand the railroad tracks to Lake Placid, while the Adirondack Rail-Trial Association wants to remove the tracks and turn the corridor into a recreational trail.
A fourth meeting will take place tomorrow night in Tupper Lake.
The public comment period ends on September 25th.
Hessinger says they hope to come up with a recommendation by the end of the year.
