Bethpage Turnpike Project


A section of the bridle trail at Bethpage State Park is so muddy, that the suction reportedly pulled shoes off of the horses hooves (it definitely pulled boots off of feet). Since the terrain makes drainage impossible, this turnpike will elevate the trail, allowing water do drain through the tread surface, keeping all mud below the structure, and maintaining a solid surface for horse and vehicle traffic.
