May 10, 2016 6:30 am

William J. Kemble is reporting in the Daily Freeman public input sessions will be held this week on a corridor management plan for state Route 9G, from county Route 78 to the state Route 199 traffic light. According to a representative of the Poughkeepsie-Dutchess County Transportation Council, there are two primary goals for the workshops. One is to educate the public, and the other, to obtain feedback. Elements of the plan include prohibiting a right-on-red turn at the intersection of Route 9G and Kelly Road; evaluating a possible speed limit reduction near Budds Corners Road; adding a pedestrian-bicycle sidewalk or trail between Bard College and Montgomery Place; and, developing a trail through the Tivoli Bays Wildlife Management Area to connect Bard with the village of Tivoli. The sessions will be held at noon, Wed., May 11, in the multipurpose room of Bertelsmann Campus Center at Bard College, and at 6:30 p.m., Thu., May 12, at Tivoli Village Hall.
