This rally will take place tomorrow, January 21 from 6-8pm at the Albany Public Library – Main Branch, 161 Washington Ave. For those of you not cycling to the meeting, a parking lot is located behind the library on Elk Street. Transit access via CDTA’s #5 or #905 Bus Rapid Transit route.
At the meeting, advocates will share information about the proposed South End Bikeway Link (SEBL) a short link to connect Albany County’s Helderberg Hudson Rail Trail (currently under construction) with the City of Albany’s Corning Preserve, the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail, and the Erie Canalway Trail. This network could greatly be enhanced by a walkway on the Livingston Avenue Bridge to connect the east side of Hudson with points west, north and south.
You’ll learn about the proposed 1.5-mile Albany’s South End Bikeway Link from advocates and cyclists, including professional landscape architect, Ted Kolankowski, and panel discussion by SEBL advocates including Parks & Trails New York, the Albany Bicycle Coalition, Friends of the Rail Trail, the Livingston Avenue Bridge Coalition, and South End Improvement Corporation.
