Joseph Davis State Park traffic update

New York State Parks Press Release

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation announced the Pletcher Road entrance to Joseph Davis State Park will remain permanently closed to vehicle traffic for the creation of a multiuse trail that connects 18F to Pletcher Road.

This action comes on the recommendation of Niagara River Greenway Commission’s soon to-be-released “Shoreline Trail Connectivity Study,” which examined trail connections and expansions from the Village of Lewiston to the Town of Porter. A traffic study conducted by State Parks determined the enactment of this closure will give improved off-road access to the shoreline and parkway trails, and create a new series of connections to ecotrails throughout the park.

This entrance road has historically been closed seasonally, and future plans for the road will include enhancements such as trail head parking and other amenities.

The 18F entrance to Joseph Davis State Park will remain open to vehicle traffic.
