Greenline progress… Opening soon?

Kingston Land Trust Rail Trail Construction

We’ve Been Working on the Greenline. Tangible Progress in 2015, Trail Opening in 2016? We’re Pulling for it.

The Kingston Point Rail Trail (KPRT) will be a recreational non-motorized transportation paved trail on a former rail bed within a property corridor owned by the City of Kingston that connects Midtown at East Chester Street with the waterfront. It will turn out to be a great way to commute for some. The conversion of former rail bed to trail features gentle grades from the Broadway commercial corridor through residential neighborhoods, to the Rondout Gardens multifamily residential area with easy connection to the Rondout waterfront district and Kingston Point.

The KPRT design has been unveiled after years of conceptual planning by Alta Planning+Design, design development by Saratoga Associates and engineering work to develop construction documents by KC Engineering. The Kingston engineering firm of Brinnier & Larios did all the survey work for us. Hone Strategic assisted in the public outreach and community engagement. You can download and view all the plans and documents online on the Kingston Greenline page of the City of Kingston Economic Development page.
