Negative Declaration

Oneida County - The New York State Department of Transportation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed PIN 201652, Route 12 Reconstruction, Village of Waterville and Town of Sangerfield, Oneida County will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves highway reconstruction of a portion of Route 12; a total project length of approximately 2.46 kilometers. Additional project objectives include improvements to the closed drainage system, signalization, and geometry at several curves and intersections and the construction of new sidewalks and curbing for the length of the project.

The existing railroad structure carrying The New York Susquehanna and Western Railway over Route 12 (BIN 7009430) will be undisturbed by the project. The standard stopping sight distance and minimum required vertical clearance can be obtained by lowering the roadway profile 0.11m at the structure, and addressing the non-standard vertical curves adjacent to it. The roadway as it passes under BIN 7009430 will retain the existing lane widths. Adjusting the highway profile will result in the need to acquire two residences. The project is located in the Village of Waterville and Town of Sangerfield.
