Ulster County bicycle and pedestrian projects receive over $6 million in state money

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has announced $24.2 million in new funding for 11 Hudson Valley projects that support bicycle and pedestrian enhancements, as well as projects targeted toward improving air quality.

This new infrastructure investment, part of a $144.6 million investment statewide, will support the construction of new multi-use bicycle and pedestrian facilities, new ADA accessible sidewalks, improved access to public transportation and enhanced roadway safety.

Three of the projects will be in Ulster County:

  • The Town of New Paltz will receive $2.2 million to construct new buffered bicycle lanes and pedestrian accessibility enhancements along the Henry W. Dubois Drive corridor.
  • Lloyd will get $673,000 for new pedestrian accessibility enhancements and wayfinding signage for the connection between Highland and the Empire State Trail.
  • Kingston will get $3.6 million for new pedestrian accessibility enhancements at Flatbush and Foxhall avenues.
