Comment Period Ends: October 16, 2009

Project Description: Modification of a Class A Marina to increase the number of winter storage vessels from 50 to 100 (50 inside and 50 outside).

Negative Declaration

Saratoga County - The Town of Halfmoon Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Intermodal and Auto Ramp Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of an intermodal and automotive handling facility on a 140 acre portion of a longstanding rail yard located in the towns of Halfmoon and Stillwater and the City of Mechanicville, New York.

The project as proposed includes: relocation within the existing rail right of way of existing Canadian Pacific Railway Company main line tracks that are currently in operation on the Site; establishment of new siderail tracks on gravel and ballasted rail beds; and installation of asphalt and concrete vehicle storage areas and internal drives for use in transloading trailers, containers and automobiles from rail cars to highway vehicles, and vice versa.

Facility operations following construction will be located primarily in areas of the site previously disturbed by railroad tracks and related facilities, and by railroad operations. Access to the site will be from Route 67 to the north of the existing main line track, and will require the construction of a new vehicular bridge across the Anthony Kill. This watercourse flows in an easterly direction along the south side of Route 67, through the City of Mechanicville and eventually into the Hudson River. A new curb cut will be established on Route 67 to accommodate this access route, and the intersection will be controlled by a stop sign. No new mainline rail lines will be constructed as part of this Action.

The project is located near New York State Route 67, with portions located within the Towns of Halfmoon and Stillwater and the City of Mechanicville, New York.
