LLOYD, N.Y. -- Most folks come to the Walkway Over The Hudson for the spectacular views, but, sometime in the not-too-distance future, they will also have an awesome place to stop for a snack or to hang out, according to a report in The Poughkeepsie Journal.

The state park, which spans the river between the hamlet of Highland on the Ulster County side and the city of Poughkeepsie on the Dutchess County side, is going to get a $2.8 million visitor and concession center, the Poughkeepsie Journal reported.

The center will be on the Ulster County side and construction bids could be issued as early as this fall, the Poughkeepsie Journal story said.

The state’s recently passed $156 billion spending plan also includes $725,000 for security, maintenance and other improvements to the sky-high tourist attraction, the Poughkeepsie Journal reported.
