It is a terrific Linear Park. My daughter danced as part of the opening day ceremonies, so we got to cross sometime after Gov Patterson and the rest of the dignitaries did their thing. We've been back a few times since in different seasons (great ice flows on the river in early January!), and it remains a thrill.
Construction on the Highland side connection has begun, but the Poughkeepsie side is still being held up by CSX. The rest of the mid segments of the Dutchess trail construction has also begun, so in the end, there will be a 5000' piece missing at the base of the bridge. Too bad, really.
