Negative Declaration

Onondaga County - The New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed I-690 over Teall Avenue and Beech Street Bridge Replacement will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the reconstructing a ¾ mile section of the highway including replacement of a 1,500 foot viaduct, or elevated highway, spanning Beech Street; replacement of the bridge over Teall Avenue; and improvement of Exit 14 at Teall Avenue (Teall Avenue interchange) in the City of Syracuse, New York. The purpose of this project is to replace the bridges carrying Interstate 690 over Beech Street and Teall Avenue, in the same location, with structures that would provide a minimum 75-year service life.

Onondaga County - The New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (NYS EFC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Revitalizing Urban Vacant Properties for Green Stormwater Infrastructure will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the installation of green infrastructure practices on multiple sites throughout the City of Syracuse. While there will be physical alteration to the sites for the installation of rain gardens and other green infrastructure practices, there will be no major impacts to the community. Surface water will not be negatively impacted. The installation of green infrastructure practices will provide on-site treatment of stormwater which will reduce combined sewer overflows and improve water quality. Soil removal for the purpose of site grading to install green infrastructure practices will have minimal impact.

NYS EFC has determined that the impact on plants and animals from this project will be minimal. The project will not adversely impact human health from exposure to new or existing sources of contaminants. Some of the potential site locations for this project are within 2,000 feet of environmental site remediation locations but none of the environmental site remediation locations are at, or adjacent to, the potential project sites. The installation of green infrastructures practices is not expected to disturb any site remediation locations.

The project is consistent with community plans and will protect the character of the community through the management of stormwater on formerly vacant and blighted properties.

The project is located in various locations of the City of Syracuse, New York
