Project Description:
Reassessment plan - Long Island Expressway/Cross Island Parkway Interchange. Reconstruction and realignment of the Long Island Expressway/Cross Island Parkway Interchange, Exits 30-32 in Queens, to improve traffic flow and congestion.In the reassessment plan, the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) has modified the original design in response to community concerns by decreasing the originally planned High Occupancy Vehicle(HOV) lanes. NYSDOT proposes to remove existing loop ramps and replace them with semi-direct ramps, convert the existing shoulder lane to a limited use entry/exit/breakdown lane and replace bridges. The reconstruction will add about five acres of new pavement. Stormwater runoff will be directed to two (2) new detention basins. The new interchanges have been designed to avoid or minimize the impact to forested areas and impacts to local communities. In addition, in cooperation with the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, NYSDOT proposes to enhance Alley Pond Park by providing for new interpretive walking and multi-use trails, reintegration of previously separated park segments, reforestation in areas where the cloverleaf ramps will be removed and restoration of Alley Pond. The restoration of Alley Pond involves the removal of invasive plants, dredging to restore the pond to historical depths and planting of native wetlands species. An existing weir will be reconstructed. Dredging of 27,000 cubic yards of sediment.Erosion controls will be used during construction.There is a Final Environmental Impact Statement on file.
