DEC Closes Roads at Hanging Bog Wildlife Management Area in Allegany County - Region 9

Seasonal Access Roads and Associated Gates Closed March 10

Effective Friday, March 10, 2017, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will close seasonal access roads and associated gates at Hanging Bog Wildlife Management Area (WMA) in the town of New Hudson, Allegany County.

Motor vehicle use on the seasonal roads during the wet spring season can cause severe damage to the roads. DEC will reopen the roads after any necessary maintenance is completed and the roads are dry enough to safely handle motor vehicle traffic. Access gates and roads at Hanging Bog WMA will be reopened in time for the youth turkey hunt weekend on April 22 and 23.
