The Adirondack Park Agency (APA) proposes to issue a new general permit, on conditions, to the New York State Department of Transportation, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Adirondack Nature Conservancy to implement best management practices to eradicate or reduce population numbers or otherwise control the growth and spread of certain terrestrial invasive plant species in wetlands in the Adirondack Park. This general permit will be in effect for a three-year period.

In order to utilize this general permit/order, each applicant must submit a completed and signed “Application and Certification for Management of Terrestrial Invasive Plant Species In or Within 100' of Wetlands in the Adirondack Park.” Agency staff will review the application for completeness, conduct a site visit and determine if the proposed project meets the terms and conditions of this general permit/order.

Washington County - The New York State Department of Transportation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Bridge Identification No. 1-03852-0 Route 149 over the Mettawee River Replacement will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The project consists of replacing the existing multi-span structure with a single span pre-stressed concrete structure. The proposed bridge will be designed to accommodate two 3.6 meter travel lanes with a 1.2 meter shoulder on the north side and a 2.7 meter parking lane on the south side. The bridge will be curbed and will carry a 2.0 meter sidewalk on both sides. The proposed highway section will match the bridge section and will include approximately 50 meters of reconstruction/resurfacing on the west approach and 40 meters on the east side. The project limits begin 45 meters west of Glen Street and end 11 meters east of River Street with a total project length of 111 meters. The building located at 100 Main Street will be acquired to accommodate the bridge replacement. The building is located at the northeast corner of the bridge and shares portions of key structural elements with the bridge. The proposed improvements will benefit existing highway related businesses by maintaining Route 149 as a link between the east and west sections of the Village of Granville’s Central Business District. In addition, this project will improve the hydraulic characteristics of the stream channel and improve safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists. The project is located in the Village of Granville.
