Negative Declaration

Nassau County - The New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Bethpage State Parkway Bikeway Extension, Bethpage State Park to the Syosset LIRR Station will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of a 7.9 mile extension of the existing Bethpage State Parkway Bikeway from the vicinity of its current northern terminus in Bethpage State Park to the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) Syosset Train Station. The objective of this project is to provide non-motorized access to recreational and employment facilities along the length of the bikeway and to reduce congestion and improve air quality by converting some motorized traffic to non-motorized traffic. The project is located within the limits of Bethpage and Trailview State Parks, along Washington Avenue, the I-495 North Service Road and Sunnyside Boulevard to the intersection of Froehlich Farm Boulevard. From that point north the bikeway will proceed as an on-road bike route utilizing Froehlich Farm Boulevard, Woodbury Road, Piquet's Lane, South Woods Road, Convent Road, Jackson Avenue and Ira Road to the Syosset LIRR station. A spur route will also be created utilizing Sunnyside Boulevard, Woodbury Road, Angel Way, and Crossways Park West.
