The Mid-Hudson News Network reports in The Daily Freeman that the sidewalk on the Rip Van Winkle Bridge will be closed three times this month for construction. The New York State Bridge Authority has closed it now through 4 p.m. Oct. 13, and will close it 7 a.m. Oct. 16 through 4 p.m. Oct. 20, and 7 a.m. Oct. 23 through 4 p.m. Oct. 27. Construction associated with the Hudson River Skywalk Project is closing the bridge for pedestrians on those days, which could change, depending on the weather. The Hudson River SkyWalk is a $5.4 million pedestrian trail linking the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill to the Olana State Historic Site in the Greenport via a walking lane on the Rip Van Winkle Bridge.
