Putnam County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Decommissioning of Breakneck Dam, Hudson Highlands State Park will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by NYS OPRHP to decommission Breakneck Dam located along Breakneck Brook and restore the original stream and riparian area. The dam has several leaks and is in disrepair. NYS OPRHP has determined that repairs to the structure would be expensive and would likely not increase public use or enjoyment of Hudson Highlands State Park. The decision to decommission the dam is also believed preferable from an environmental standpoint as it will result in the restoration of the original streambed and riparian area. The project is located approximately 1 mile from the Brook Trail trailhead on Route 9D in Hudson Highlands State Park in the Town of Philipstown, New York.

Rockland County - The New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Route 45: New Jersey State Line to Old Nyack Turnpike Drainage Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action will improve drainage deficiences along NYS Route 45 by providing a closed drainage system. In areas where drainage improvements are included, 1.2 meter uniform shoulders will be built to provide benefits for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians using the highway. The Hungry Hollow Road intersection will include minor geometric improvements to the approach grade and sight distance to reduce accidents. Improvements at the Thruway under pass will include a correction of superelevation with asphalt concrete pavement courses to meet current standards. The project will also restore the pavement to a good condition and extend the service life of the pavement for a minimum of 10 years with a full-depth reconstruction in realignment areas from the New Jersey State Line to the area south of Amber Ridge Road and a single course asphalt concrete overlay in the other areas within the work limits. The project is located along NYS Route 45 from north of Orchard Court to south of Amber Ridge Road in the Village of Chestnut Ridge, New York.
