The action involves the the proposed replacement of the Route 31 bridge over Oneida Creek on existing alignment by using an off site detour. The bridge will remain on the existing horizontal and vertical alignment. Route 316 will be used as an off site detour route while construction for the bridge replacement on Route 31 will take place. To accommodate the offsite detour, the bridge at Route 316 over the Old Erie Canal will require upgrading.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Tompkins County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Ithaca Dredging Project - Sediment Management Facility. The Final EIS is available from the NYS DEC Region 7 Office, the City of Ithaca Planning Department and on line at: http://www.ecologicllc.com/ithacadredging.html.

The action involves a proposal by the City of Ithaca, as the project sponsor, to develop and maintain a sediment management facility (SMF) on a 23 acre portion of the City-owned Southwest Site. The SMF has a design capacity of between 60,000 and 80,000 cubic yards of dredged sediments. The SMF will be used to dewater or process up to 25,000 cubic yards of dredged sediments generated from the City's dredging of lower Cascadilla Creek, and possibly, additional material from the Canal Corporation navigational dredging of Cayuga Inlet, and in the future, material dredged from the Inlet's associated flood control works. Berms will be constructed to create the sediment basin; sediment will be hydraulically dredged from the inlet and transported via pipeline to the basin for dewatering. Sediment will settle to the bottom of the basin and the overlying water will be decanted to the relief channel and returned to the inlet. After contaminant testing, the dewatered sediment will be removed from the SMF and transported off site for appropriate beneficial uses. The project is located on Elmira Road in the City of Ithaca, New York.
