Following the art contest, County Executive Dan McCoy unveiled the latest murals that are part of a public safety awareness campaign at the Slingerlands trailhead of the Rail Trail, at 839 Kenwood Ave.
“One of my signature achievements as has been finishing the Albany County Rail Trail and enhancing it every year to make it a place where the community can come together for exercise, art, entertainment and more.” McCoy said. “And these new murals are a way for us to beautify the Rail Trail, while highlighting the importance of making it a safer place for everyone – no matter their age or mode of transportation – to enjoy.”
