Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan to kick off Phase Two of the South End Connector project


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan and local partners announced the South End connector bikeway project is almost complete.

In a release posted to the Albany Bicycle Coalition’s website on July 4, organizers said the project is “99 and 44/100 percent done”.

Construction for the project began on September 16, 2019. The connector will link the Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail and the Mohawk Hudson Bike-Hike Trail to make it easier for bicyclists and pedestrians to get around the city.
