Preparations continue for Catharine

CATHARINE VALLEY TRAIL—Work on the Catharine Valley Trail will commence again once the weather improves.
There are a number of places along the trail that may be finished this year depending on if work starts in the spring or the summer.  Jeff McDonald, facilities manager for the Finger Lakes State Parks, said that many areas need to be surfaced, in addition to signs and striping to mark the route through villages.
In Watkins Glen, work will be done on Decatur Street where the trail is.  Village clerk Donna Beardsley explained that handicapped curbs will be put in where required, benches added and signs to mark the route from Seneca Lake to 12th Street.
“The time line for opening (of the Watkins Glen portion) is memorial Day,” said Beardsley.
Striping and signs will be put up in Montour Falls where the Catharine Valley Trail goes through the village to Cook Street.  McDonald said that roadwork needed to be done south of Montour, including at the overpass and comfort station.  All the way down at the other end of the trail, in Elmira, is seeing planning.  He explained that a study was being done to see if the trail could be continued past the domes into a residential area.  A public hearing is scheduled for Jan. 29 in Horseheads where the Elmira-Chemung Transportation Council will release a draft report identifying the preferred path of the trail from the Mark Twain State Park to Wygant Road.
