Construction of Dutchess Rail Trail Stage 5

WRS Dutchess Rail Trail Stage 5 constructed the trail segment that  connected the Morgan Lake trailhead to the Walkway over the Hudson, in the City of Poughkeepsie.

This section of railbed included a substantial piece that runs through a rock cut and had significant drainage problems.

The project built up the trail in this section and created drainage along its sides.

The construction of Stage 5 completed the continuous 12 ½ mile WRSDRT from the Walkway over the Hudson to the former Hopewell Depot , in the Hamlet of Hopewell Junction.
