On October 14, 2004 the Ulster County Legislature named the Kerhonkson Bridge after former judge, county legislator, fire company chaplain, veteran, Lion's club member and all around "nice guy" Herb Poppel. It took five years, $4,000,000.00 in stimulus money and hard work by a group of dedicated public officials including Legislators Mary Sheeley, TJ Briggs, Joe Stoeckler and Susan Cummings and County Executive Mike Hein to put a plan into action.
