Dyson donates $1.5 million to railroad bridge  
MILLBROOK - The effort to reopen the long-closed  Poughkeepsie Railroad  
Bridge to pedestrians and cyclists has taken a major  step forward.
The Millbrook-based Dyson Foundation announced today  it will fund a $1.5  
million engineering and design study that would serve  "as the first critical step
'' in plans to transform the bridge, closed  since a 1974 fire, into a  
pedestrian park spanning the Hudson River.  
In a press release, Dyson officials said the grant will allow  Walkway Over  
the Hudson, the non-profit group dedicated to converting the  bridge into a  
public park, to "fast-track" the project in hopes of  finishing it in time for  
the 2009 Henry Hudson Quadricentennial  celebration.
For more details, read Wednesday's Poughkeepsie  Journal.
