Creighton Manning Engineering, LLP was recently selected by the New York State Office of General Services (OGS) to provide engineering services to convert an existing 34-mile segment of railroad in the Adirondacks to a multi-use trail, including design of trail access points, parking areas, and safety improvements.
The 34-mile multi-use trail from Lake Placid to Tupper Lake is a vital link in the trail development plan for a potential trail connection between Lake Placid and Old Forge. The trail will be designed for use by pedestrians, bicyclists, snowmobiles, and cross country skiers.
“From Tupper Lake to Lake Placid, the Adirondacks is home to unparalleled natural beauty, and we are building on what makes this region so special,” Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said. In May 2016, Governor Cuomo announced the State has $8 million to build the multi-use trail between Tupper Lake and Lake Placid within the next three years.
