“We had planned this to be the final weekend but are taking this precaution to ensure the safety of people, especially veterans, that may have used the parkway," said DEC Regional Director Bob Stegemann.

The DEC said the weekend of Nov. 4, more than 1,800 people, including 170 veterans, traveled the parkway and enjoyed its scenic Adirondack views.
