The Central Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway — a corridor that winds along Route 28 through the Hudson River watershed — will soon feature new signs to engage travellers with natural, cultural and recreational attributes along the route.
The Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) is leading a project to update and enhance interpretive signage along the Scenic Byway between North Creek and Blue Mountain Lake.
The project organizers hope to incorporate natural resource science and local recreational opportunities into the narrative. An overarching goal for the project is to promote environmental and economic sustainability by highlighting the region’s natural and cultural assets.
A public forum will be had on Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 5:30 pm at the Tannery Pond Center, in North Creek. Attendees are encouraged to provide perspectives on topics and theme development for the signs. All are welcome to attend the forum.
The National Scenic Byways Program, which spans the entire country, aims to enhance travelers’ experiences by highlighting local resources and features along its routes. The new signs for the Central Adirondack Trail Scenic Byway will provide easily accessible information that will orient readers to the natural, historic, cultural, scenic and recreational attributes of landscapes and waterways along the route, including the Hudson River.
This project is being completed by Adirondack Research as part of the New York State Scenic Byways Program managed by the Adirondack North Country Association, funded by the Federal Highway Administration and administered by the New York State Department of Transportation.
