Broome County - The New York State Governor's Office of Storm Recovery (NYS GOSR), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Front Street Stormwater Separation will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The City of Binghamton is requesting funding for the replacement and separation of storm and sanitary sewers along an approximately 0.5 mile stretch of Front Street (Route 11) from Winding Way to Prospect Street (Front Street Corridor) in the West Side neighborhood of Binghamton, New York. The Front Street Corridor runs north-south, parallel to the Chenango River. Improvements to be funded through the Community Development Block Grant - Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program and GOSR include the replacement of approximately 1,600 linear feet of combined sanitary sewers and the installation of approximately 2,560 linear feet of storm sewers along the Front Street Corridor allowing for the separation of storm and sanitary flows.

The proposed project is part of a larger project being undertaken by the United States Federal Highway Administration (US FHWA), which involves the full reconstruction of Front Street by narrowing pavement width, installing new curb lines, incorporating shared use travel lanes, replacing existing water mains, and installing new street lighting. The US FHWA project is intended to improve overall safety for pedestrians, bikers, and drivers while also providing better riverfront recreational access, improving neighborhood aesthetics, and creating a new gateway to the City of Binghamton. The proposed project and its associated improvements are proposed in conjunction with the US FHWA project, in part so that no disruption of new pavement is needed at a later date. Thus, while not dependent on the US FHWA project, the proposed project is an integral part of the US FHWA project.
