Kensico Dam Road Reopens, But Not For Cars

After seven years, the Kensico Dam roadway is reopen to pedestrians, cyclists and skaters but not vehicular traffic.

On May 24, Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino and New York City Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Carter Strickland announced the re-opening following a $42 million rehabilitation project that ended last December.

“The Kensico Dam Park is a vital public space in Westchester,” Astorino said. “Reopening the roadway will further expand the recreational opportunities that make Westchester a great place to live and visit.”

Off-roaders remain a concern at Silver Lake Trail

West Harrison resident Richard Viscome, 54, has trekked the Silver Lake Preserve trail day-in and dayout for well over 25 years. Over the years, if he found something amiss or out of place, Viscome said he would work to remedy the situation. But his newest challenge is no quick fix.

As the unofficial eyes and ears of the preserve, Viscome is concerned with the damage caused by dirt bikes and more specifically All-Terrain Vehicles, which are prohibited on the trail.

Seeing his old stomping grounds torn to shreds, Viscome first tried to deal with the “potato-heads” on his own. Using hundreds of dead tree branches, boulders and logs, Viscome not only blocked the entrances for off-roaders but the pathways as well.

“That’s how we play war,” Viscome said pointing to a trail covered with the biker booby-traps.
