From the Adirondack Daily Enterprise:
KEENE — The state has started installing “no parking” signs along Route 73 in the town of Keene, where multiple popular trailheads are located.

The Department of Environmental Conservation announced Tuesday — after the Department of Transportation had already begun posting “no parking” signs along the road — that drivers would no longer be allowed to park along a 4-mile stretch of Route 73 between the Rooster Comb trailhead in the hamlet of Keene Valley and the Chapel Pond trailheads to the southeast, toward I-87.

Parking will still be allowed in designated pull-off areas along the road, but parking on the shoulder will now be prohibited “for public safety reasons, primarily because pedestrians, mainly hikers and bicyclists, were forced to walk or ride in vehicle lanes when parked vehicles occupied the shoulder of the road,” the department said in a news release.
