The Northern Tier Recreation Trail

The Northern Tier Recreation Trail is a Clinton County sponsored project. It has been funded by grants from the Department of Transportation, NY State Waterfront Grant, Senator Betty Little, and Clinton County. The total grant is $1.52 million. We have completed the public input portion of the process; incorporating input from the public. The Draft Design Report has been submitted to NYSDOT and FHWA. Comments from both agencies should be received in the next few weeks at which point the Final Design will be issued by NY State DOT with drawings and specifications being started at this time. This process should be completed by July 2016. Bids should go out in late Fall of 2016 with construction beginning in May 2017. The Trail should be substantially completed by late Fall of 2017.
