REALIZING GRANT AWARD: The Rail Trail just south of Water St will be closed for approx. 1 month starting November 13 during construction.
As previously announced in January of 2016, the Village of New Paltz will receive $246,365 for the Replacement of the Culvert System.
This project will improve intermittent stream flow and movement of fish and wildlife by replacing a deteriorated culvert system with adequately-sized drainage structures at a road and rail trail crossing adjacent to the Wallkill River. The new system also will improve the flow of floodwater, and maintain habitat connections for eel and other Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) such as wood turtle.
