Preparations for paving Old Albany Post Road are underway. With your donation we can restore the oldest road in continued use in America and put an end to the threat of paving.  Servicing a properly engineered and maintained gravel road costs less than a paved road.   As a sustainable dirt and gravel road, Old Albany Post Road can continue to service the needs of the community and the history-loving nation for another hundred years. 
 

The Old Road Society has a gravel road plan prepared to meet today's - and tomorrow's - challenges. It begins with Ken Skorseth, the former director of the South Dakota Local Transportation Assistance Program.  He has agreed to conduct an engineering analysis and make recommendations for preserving the historic Old Albany Post Road.  Ken Skorseth is THE recognized #1 expert on gravel road construction and maintenance in the United States.  He is the author of the US Department of Transportation’s guide to dirt road maintenance, most recently revised in 2015.  We are excited that he is interested in helping us with preservation and development of best practices.  He will meet with Philipstown officials and attend a public meeting to present his recommendations.  We need funding to make this happen.


No donation is too small!
