Marion River Carry Access Status

In 2013 OSI acquired the lands around the carry area:

Shortly after that it was thought that the state of NY might acquire the property and add it to the forest preserve:

Does anyone know of any update on the status of this area? I was hoping that by now, four years later, one might be able to enter the property at the carry and launch a canoe or kayak.

Is the only access to the Eckford chain (other than from Raquette L. or from the public beach on Blue Mtn L.) STILL from the shoulder of Route 28 onto Utowana Lake?

Has anyone heard anything about the status of the Carry property and land access to it?

I don't believe the access has changed. There is private land owned by Marion River Carry Railroad Co. between Rt. 28 and OSI's on the river. Likely intended to be that way. I think the purpose of OSI's acquisition was to preserve the carry for public use, not to improve access there.
