The Town of Victor proposes the construction of the Auburn Trail Extension along a 2.5 mile route utilizing the abandoned railroad line from Main Street Fishers northerly to Woolston Road. Portions of the trail are located within the NYS Freshwater wetland adjacent area but work is primarily restricted to top of the existing railroad bed and road right-of-way. Additionally, as part of the project a failing culvert over Irondequoit Creek will be removed and replaced with a span bridge. Department staff have concluded that the proposed project is compatible with the preservation, protection and conservation of the wetland and its benefits. A stormwater pollution prevention plan has been prepared for the project.
