Representatives with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Department of Transportation discussed the possibility of expanding the Adirondack Scenic Railroad to Lake Placid, or removing the tracks for a recreational trail. The public meeting was held at The View in Old Forge yesterday with both agencies looking at the economic potential of having passing an amendment to the Unit Management Plan for the Remsen-Lake Placid Travel Corridor. Options to expand and create more snowmobile trails from Old Forge to Tupper Lake on state lands were also examined. Officials say they want to use public meetings to examine the best course of action to maximize economic, environmental and transportation benefits from the corridor. If the recreational trail is built, the railroad tracks would reportedly be removed. The trail would directly connect to and travel through population centers of interest from December 1st to April 30th each year. Some residents oppose a recreational trail, saying that The Adirondack Scenic Railroad has the opportunity to handle small volumes of freight shipment, but it would require year-round availability of the rail service as well as has the potential to partner with parks to increase tourism. Additional public hearings are scheduled for November in Tupper Lake & Lake Placid.
