ENB - Region 4 Notices 12/31/2008
Montgomery County - The New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Route 30A over CSX Railroad Bridge (BIN 1021430) Replacement and Intersection Improvement Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposal to replace the subject bridge structure on a new alignment, shifted far enough to the east to accommodate construction of the new bridge while two-way traffic is maintained through the project area on the existing bridge. Associated with this replacement are highway improvements along Route 30A and intersection improvements at State Route 5. BIN 1021430 is a non-redundant, thru-girder bridge in an advanced state of deterioration. The preferred alternative is to remove the deficient structure and construct a new one in its place because of the type of bridge, the materials used, and the advanced nature of the deterioration, and the need to address operational issues at the Route 30A/ Route 5 intersection. The proposed bridge would consist of two 12 foot through lanes with 3 foot curb offsets, a 12 foot northbound left turn lane and two 5 foot sidewalks. In addition to the left turn lane from Route 30A northbound to Route 5 westbound, a left turn lane from Route 5 westbound to Route 30A southbound and a right turn from Route 5 eastbound to Route 30A southbound will be added and the existing traffic signal system replaced. To achieve the bridge realignment and widening for turning lanes there will be several commercial property acquisitions and relocations in addition to some minor strip takes of property. The project is located in the Village of Fonda, New York at the grade separated intersection of NYS Route 30A and CSX Railroad (BIN 1021430) and the intersection of NYS Route 30A and NYS Route 5.
