Negative Declaration

Madison County - The New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Johnny Cake Hill Road over Feeder Canal Bridge Replacement Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the replacement of the existing jack arch bridge, which is currently in a deteriorated state, with a new precast concrete box culvert. The proposed design will improve the hydraulic opening, reduce the scour vulnerability, and reduce the likelihood that the bridge and adjoining roadway will flood. Additionally, it will restore the crossing to a condition which provides a minimum 75 year service life, using cost effective techniques to minimize the life cycle cost of maintenance and repair. The reason for the Determination of No Significant Effect (DONSE) is this is the replacement of a bridge that was a structure component on the Erie Canal feeder system. The project is located on Johnny Cake Hill Road in the Town of Madison, New York.

Tompkins County - The City of Ithaca Board of Public Works, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Brindley Street Bridge Replacement Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the relocation of Brindley Street by connecting Taber Street with the West State Street/Taughannock Boulevard intersection where a small City of Ithaca parking lot currently exists. Intersection and traffic signal modifications at the West State Street/Taughannock Boulevard intersection will be necessary to accommodate the relocation. A new bridge will be constructed on the proposed roadway to carry traffic over the Cayuga Inlet. The span of the bridge will be approximately 115 foot. The project is located on Brindley Street in the City of Ithaca, New York.
