ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Four new outdoor access projects are open for public use in Steuben, Chautauqua, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties.

Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joe Martens says the upgrades are among 50 new access sites across the state and total a $230,000 investment in the state’s outdoor destinations through the NY Works program.

The state contributed $100,000 for a floating fishing dock at Birdseye Hollow Park in Steuben County.

A $70,000 project at Watts Flats Wildlife Management Area in Chautauqua County involved building an accessible hunting blind and wildlife observation platform.

In Lewis County, a new waterway access site on the East Branch of Fish Creek Conservation Easement was created with $45,000 in funding.

A new access site was completed at the Fish Creek Wildlife Management Area in St. Lawrence County for $15,000.
