A project designed to reduce parking problems for visitors to the High Peaks Wilderness Area that looked doomed has received approval to proceed.

The state previously allocated $1.2 million to purchase and operate four buses to run along state Route 73 through Keene Valley in Essex County. But the novel coronavirus pandemic resulted in more people hiking the High Peaks in 2020 as a way, in part, to avoid crowds. This made operating the shuttles even riskier, so the plan was postponed last year.
