For Adirondack Park Agency: Comment Period Ends: November 17, 2011

Project Description: The proposed action involves a new private airport on existing agricultural fields. A 1,450 foot long, 50 foot wide grass airstrip would be maintained by mowing. The runway is no less than 1,400 feet westerly of Route 22 and has a north-south orientation. No runway lighting or structures are proposed. A 7 foot tall pole with an orange nylon windsock would be installed adjacent to the runway. Use of the seasonal airstrip would be limited to daylight hours during the months of June through September each year. A maximum of one daily take-off and landing is proposed. No maintenance or re-fueling will occur on-site.

Negative Declaration

Clinton County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Lamberton Bank will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the development of an 18 acre Life of Mine area sand and gravel mine. Sand and gravel will be mined to a depth ranging from 25 to 65 feet below existing grade, and operations will involve onsite screening of material. Reclamation will occur as areas are mined. Upon completion of mining, the excavated area will be reclaimed, with side slopes graded to a 1 vertical to 2 horizontal slope or flatter, and vegetation will be established on the entire site. The project is located approximately 3,000 feet southeast of Big Hill Road and Davison Road intersection, Town of Mooers, New York.

Essex County - The New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed NYS Route 22 over the Boquet River will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the replacement of the NYS Route 22 Bridge over the Boquet River. The project objectives are to eliminate structural deficiencies using cost effective techniques, provide adequate structural capacity for at least 75 years, and improve safety for the traveling public and pedestrians. The selected alternative addresses all of these objectives and will result in a replacement bridge. The replacement bridge will be built approximately on the same alignment as the existing bridge, requiring moderate approach realignment.

NYS Route 22 is designated as an "All-American Trail", a National and State Scenic Byway (Lakes to Locks Passage Inc.) and serves as the connection from Interstate 87 to the Essex Ferry Crossing to Vermont. The replacement bridge will not affect the standing of the "All American Trail" and the Scenic Byway.

The project is located on NYS Route 22 Bridge in the Hamlet of Wadhams Mills, Town of Westport, New York.
