ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- New York conservation and transportation regulators are beginning a review of how a 119-mile long rail line through the Adirondacks can be used in the future.
The Remsen Lake Placid Travel Corridor connecting Utica with Lake Placid has been managed under rules established in 1996, but the state wants the public to weigh in on how things might change.
Railroad supporters and backers of using parts of the corridor for recreation paths have sometimes been at odds over it best use.
About 100 miles are in the Adirondack Park, with the remaining 19 miles in the Tug Hill region.
The new review will weigh public and economic issues related to transportation and recreational uses of the corridor.
The agencies involved will schedule public forums on proposed changes during the review.
