ENB - Region 1 Notices 12/9/2009
Negative Declaration (Amended)
Suffolk County - The New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed NY Route 110 Drainage and Roadway Improvements (PIN 0112.52) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Regional Director of NYS DOT - Region 10, Hauppauge had granted design approval and signed the Notice of Environmental Determination on July 1, 2008. A triple culvert proposed under this project was recently determined to be a new bridge based on its width and, in accordance with the SAFETEA-LU Matrix, the Deputy Chief Engineer grants design approval and signs the Notice of Environmental Determination when a new bridge is included in a 100% state funded project. The amended notice is a procedural change and does not change the design or environmental impacts.
The purpose of this Drainage and Roadway improvement project is to address a recurrence of flooding conditions along a 0.9 mile (1.45 km) section of NY Route 110 from Prime Avenue to Young's Hill Road, to provide safety, operational, and pavement improvements, and to enhance pedestrian movement.
The action involves the installation of a large culvert under Creek Road, maintenance and repair of existing culverts and streambed (silt removal and re-grading), replace/repair of tide gates, removal of creek constriction caused by the partially collapsed culvert at Hill Place and construction of a filtration basin on the vacant town property between Creek Road and Mill Dam Road. Various elements of the Highway Improvements will include the construction of two roundabouts at Creek Road and Grist Mill Lane with a continuous two-way left turn lane from Prime Ave to Hill Place, the repair and resurfacing of pavement, installation of new pavement markings, new signing, repair/replacement of deteriorated curb and sidewalk and enhancing pedestrian movement by improving striping, channelization and pedestrian crosswalks where feasible.
The project is located on NY Route 110 from Prime Avenue to Young's Hill Road in the Town of Huntington, New York.
