Event description

Description

Amtrak has proposed new fencing and locked gates at crossings along the Empire Corridor South between Rhinecliff and Stuyvesant. Eventually, it plans to construct similar barriers at locations between Rensselaer and Poughkeepsie.

Amtrak's project would eliminate public access to the Hudson River at places where people have launched boats, fished and hunted for generations. Residents of Castleton-on-Hudson have already lost access to their public waterfront park.

At this info session (followed by a site visit to the proposed site of a 700-foot-long fence), you'll learn how you can help promote a more balanced approach to railroad safety and pedestrian access, and hear about alternatives to crossing busy passenger rail lines used in other parts of the U.S.
