Project Title: Adirondack Northway Call Box Replacement Project

Location: NYS Department of Transportation Right-of-Way, Clinton, Essex and Warren Counties.

Comment Period Ends: December 5, 2002

Project Description: The project involves the replacement of the existing non-functioning VHF based NYS Police emergency call box system with a new wireless-based system, and the addition of cellular phone service. The new system will be constructed (without cost to New York State) and managed (pursuant to the NYS Telecommunications Site Manager Agreement) by Crown Communications New York, Inc. for use by the NYS Police in partnership with the NYS Department of Transportation. The proposed system will include the replacement of the 64 existing call boxes between Adirondack Northway Interchanges 26 and 35 with new call boxes supported by a wireless-based infrastructure. The new call boxes will be similar to the existing ones in size and design. The infrastructure servicing the call boxes is proposed to consist of 33 brown, steel antenna poles, each 38 ft. in height with a grouping of 5 brown equipment cabinets containing transmitting and receiving equipment. Each of the 38 poles will have up to four sets of flat panel antennas. This will provide for co-location on the poles of up to three additional cellular carriers. The new wireless-based system will service the call boxes and also provide additional cellular phone service to the Northway travel corridor. Most of the 33 poles will be located at the edge of the tree line and will not be highly visible from the travel corridor. The equipment cabinets will be screened from the travel corridor by existing vegetation or by newly planted vegetation. Underground electrical and telephone lines will service each of the 33 pole/equipment cabinet sites.

Essex, Warren and Washington Counties - The Lake George Park Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Revisions to 645-7.6 and 645-7.7 of Title 6 NYCRR will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves Chapter 81 of the Laws of 2002 amended Section 43-0125 of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) to increase user fees for the registration of boats, docks and moorings on Lake George. The fees are a means to fund programs to preserve and protect Lake George and its surrounding watershed. The amendments increase fees 50% to adjust fees for inflationary effects, the first increase since the fees were established in 1988. Fees paid pursuant to this provision are deposited in the Lake George Park Trust Fund and may be used only for programs of the Commission to preserve and protect Lake George and its users. The Lake George Park is comprised of Lake George and the surrounding land drainage basin and is located at the southeastern edge of the Adirondack Park in portions of the counties of Warren, Washington and Essex.
