New York State Route 375 (NY 375), locally known as West Hurley Road for its entire length, is a short highway in the Catskill Park located entirely within Ulster County, New York, in the United States. It primarily allows for more direct access from nearby Kingston to Woodstock. It runs north–south from NY 28 at West Hurley to near the business district of Woodstock, where it terminates at another state highway, NY 212. The route was designated in the 1930 renumbering in New York, replacing a piece of legislative Route 5 from 1908 and has remained unchanged since.

Route description[edit]

History[edit]

The north–south highway linking West Hurley to Woodstock was originally designated as part of Route 5, an unsigned legislative route, by the New York State Legislature in 1908. Route 5 continued east of West Hurley on modern NY 28 and west of Woodstock on what is now NY 212.[4][5] The section of Route 5 between West Hurley and Woodstock was designated as the signed NY 375 as part of the 1930 renumbering of state highways in New York.[1]

In 2013, NY 375 was officially designated Levon Helm Memorial Boulevard in memory of the late Mark Lavon "Levon" Helm, a local resident best known for his work as drummer and vocalist for The Band.[6]
