Opened in July, the South End Connector links the Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail and the Mohawk Hudson Bike-Hike Trail. It’s the city’s first two-way cycle path, and Albany is looking for ideas to make it even more appealing and user-friendly, particularly the section running beneath Interstate 787.

The public meeting will feature a project overview and small group discussions letting participants share impressions of the trail and visions for its future. This project team will design several potential options based on such feedback.
