ALBANY — The Durham Valley Scenic Byway in Greene County has been designated a part of the New York State Scenic Byways System after a bill authored by state Sen. Michelle Hinchey, D-Saugerties, and Assemblyman Chris Tague, R-Schoharie, was signed into law by Gov. Kathy Hochul on Thursday.

The roadways in the bill, which include 21 miles of road spanning the towns of Durham and Windham, were designated as scenic roads by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation in 1991, one year before the creation of the New York State Scenic Byways program by the state Legislature.
