SCHENECTADY -- Schenectady County will host a public meeting on June 21, to discuss the feasibility of extending the new Alco Heritage Trail bike trail from from its current River Street terminus to Riverside Park in the Stockade neighborhood.
The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the McChesney Room at the Schenectady County Library's central library on Clinton Street.
The Alco trail, most of which was built in 2017 and is still a work in progress, runs from the Erie Canalway Trail on Maxon Road Extension along the Mohawk River through Mohawk Harbor to River Street.
The goal of the study is to decide how to link it to the Western Gateway Bridge and Schenectady County Community College, where the Alco trail could be re-linked to the Canalway Trail. The $30,000 study is funded by the Schenectady County Metroplex Development Authority and the state Department of State, through a Regional Economic Development Council grant.
