Project Contact


The South End Connector is a 1.5 mile multi-use path that connects the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail, as it leaves Downtown Albany, with the Albany County Rail Trail, near the Port of Albany in the South End.  An approximate 0.46-mile portion of the South End Connector will go under I-787, between Church Street and the Broadway and Quay intersection. The project will include a new design and amenities such as lighting, murals, space for community activities. This project will transform the space into a vibrant active link from the South End to the waterfront, downtown Albany, and the regional and statewide trail system.
