DUTCHESS RAIL TRAIL


6-19-09 town of Poughkeepsie – at Overocker Rd. – seeds that were planted now growing grass – at the south end there is a concrete barier and a permanent metal street sign type post and metal sign that says TRAIL CLOSED – at north side there was no barels or yellow caution tape blocking RT – the pavement is complete from this point northward – RT appears open

6-23-09 Tue. I had mentioned to someone that the RT is open and I had ridden the RT to behind the Stop & Shop off rt. 44 but they had said they had ridden the RT further north and the pavement was not complete – with a break in the weather I rode up to Grand Ave. in the town of Poughkeepsie to see what was going on – I had seen that a crossing on the south side (toward Overocker et al.) had been completed – this is like the crossing at Overocker but there is no parking lot – there are those concrete islands and, now with stripeing completed, I can see that this is to split the RT into 2 lanes – a northbound lane and a southbound lane – the main RT is double wide like the Hudson Valley RT in Highland (that one does not have the sophisticated road crossings as does the DRT) – about like a country road
I had talked to one of the workers and he had confirmed they had just paved a section not yet paved yesterday and that the RT is now completely paved from Morgan lake – the northern terminus to Overocker Rd. – there is still much landscape type work being done – wood rail fencing, seeding etc. – I rode from Grand Ave. to Overocker Rd. at the south end of the parking lot – it is 1.6 mi.
here are some of the things I had seen:

at Grand Ave. – one can see an old RR signal – there are 2 concrete bases for some sort of light? perhaps a ped Xing TCL?
wood rail fencing at some of the properties along the RT ROW and at the Van Wagner Rd. overpass
there is a new concrete “deck” on the Van Wagner overpass – I had noticed a heavy wood Christian cross in the middle of the overpass ? – I had also noticed there is no exit/entrance going down to Van Wagner Rd. – there is also no official exit/entrance to-from the Stop&Shop – as per the town of Poughkeepsie meeting plans there was suposed to be an exit/entrance – however there is an un-official exit/entrance to-from the RT at the top of Love road – the south entrance to the rt. 44 Stop & Shop plaza – at the top of Love Rd. there is a short section of dirt road that goes up to the RT ROW – I had noticed a concrete barrier – hopefuly when work is complete this un-official exit/entrance will remain open
