Niagara County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Fort Niagara Fishing Access and Boat Launch Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves improvements to the 2 existing boat launch sites, repairing the eroding shoreline, and expanding accessibility to the dock system on the lower Niagara River.

There are no new utilities as part of this work. The project is located at the Fort Niagara State Park on Route 18F in Youngstown, New York.
