I,as everyone else,was able to easily ride (or walk) around the construction barrels at the east end of the Walkway.The new kiosk for stage 5 of the Dutchess RT was in place as were the green directional signs.The mileage posts were also in place.HJ 13.0 is actualy on WOTH SP property.I was able to ride this new section from the new Walkway trailhead to the existing Morgan Lake trailhead.(phase 2 2009) About 3 weeks latter,chain link fence gates are put up on the 3 small bridges curtailing usage of this new section of the RT

The last section of railing,on the siding overpass bridge,is installed.

The barricades are no longer in place and this section of the RT is now open.There is no official grand opening of this section yet.I am now using this new section,combined with the 2009 phase 2 section,as a bicycle cross town ‘expressway’ from the Walkway.I exit at the No. Grand Ave.(CP GRAND in RR parlence) intersection.
