The Urban Trail Project Survey

Dutchess County is planning a new trail network utilizing the former CSX rail line property within the City & Town of Poughkeepsie. The Urban Trail will offer safe and easy connections to Marist College, and other destinations along Route 9 such as, Quiet Cove Riverfront Park, the Walkway Over the Hudson, WRS Dutchess Rail Trail, and the City's northside neighborhoods. The vision of the Urban Trail is to maximize connections and access for those who walk, run, bicycle, whether for transportation, recreation, or other purposes. Your input is valued and will help the project team understand travel patterns, current barriers to walking and bicycling, potential usage of the future trail, and the types of amenities you think are important. Please take the Urban Trail Project Survey and thanks for your assistance. To learn more about this project visit:
