I visited the Ashokan Reservoir for the first time, I immediately noticed NYCDOT speed limit signs on 28A: . Looks like a 1909 court ruling ordered the city to maintain the roads around the reservoir, had no idea!

It's a bit more involved. Basically, NYC owns a lot of land in Catskills for water use. There are a lot of tensions with locals there, as NYC water supply is built to ancient Rome standards (except for lead pipes) and NYC has a lot of say in land use in that area to keep that water drinkable. There was a video in another thread touching on the topic (with a positive spin on the situation):

Great to see this moving forward, for the six-laning even if not for the conversion to I-86. I'm not holding my breath for the Hale Eddy project which would be needed to complete I-86, but this is a big step in the right direction (finally).

So if done, what gaps would remain in I-86?
