Negative Declaration

Warren County - The Warren County Board of Supervisors, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Project Change Concerning the Warren County New Health and Human Services Building will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. Included as part of the original project (construction of a New Health and Human Services Building) was a turning lane on an adjacent public road known as Glen Lake Road. The building was the subject of a previous SEQRA Determination in March, 2008. Due to the volume of vehicles turning left into the facility from Glen Lake Road, a left-hand turn lane was originally recommended for the secondary entrance to the Municipal Center campus. This finding was based on a Traffic Impact Study prepared by Clark Patterson Lee in February 2008. A design was developed for the left turn lane. Upon review of the design and its potential impacts, it has been determined that the construction of the left turn lane to meet horizontal and vertical sight distance standards would have a significant impact on the intersection of Courthouse Drive with Glen Lake Road. The Traffic Impact Study predicted a significant increase in morning traffic flow from the Glen Lake Road entrance to the site. This increase in morning traffic flow would exceed the threshold for a left turn lane by 5 movements (35 vs. 30). Based upon the fact that the threshold is only exceeded by 5 movements, that the movements are projected versus actual and that the possibility exists that the main entrance to the Municipal Center will take more traffic than projected, it is likely unnecessary to construct the left turn lane. The County does not wish to construct the left turn lane at this time due to the obvious impact on Courthouse Drive and less likely impact on Glen Lake Road. Clark Patterson Lee concurs with this recommendation. The County wishes to monitor the actual traffic after construction is complete and only proceed with construction if a significant problem exists. The project is located at the Warren County Municipal Center at 1340 State Route 9 in Lake George, New York.
