Cohoes plans get OK for bike/pedestrian retrofit of the “Black Bridge”

The Albany County City of Cohoes has decided to go forward with transforming an old Delaware & Hudson Railway bridge into a pedestrian-bicycle pathway. The bridge, connecting Van Schaick Island and the village of Green Island, is a part of the  interconnected trail network that includes the Erie Canalway Trail, the Cohoes Heritage Trail, and the Mohawk Hudson Bike-Hike Trail. City officials and consultants have worked on parts of this project since 2005. A contract for the project is expected to be signed on Dec. 28, with work set to start in January depending on the weather.
