Facility: NYC Edc - Sirr Wye Connection
East of Western Ave, Adjacent to Sirr
Staten Island, NY 10303
Application ID: 2-6401-00269/00002
Permit(s) Applied for: Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Project is Located: Staten Island, Richmond County
Project Description:
As part of an overall rehabilitation effort, the applicant proposes to construct a direct rail interconnection to facilitate direct rail movements between the two branches of the Staten island Railroad (SIRR). The proposed wye connection would be constructed within Block 1348 - Lot 1, a 72 acre City- owned parcel located east of Western Avenue and the Howland Hook Marine Terminal and west of South Avenue between the existing Travis and North Shore branches of the SIRR. The rail interconnection would consist of two primary components: a gravel fill embankment and approximately 1,200 linear feet of rail line. The wye connection would be constructed on the new rail embankment. Portions of existing fill and tidal wetlands areas below the proposed rail connection would be excavated and replaced with clean fill to provide structural support. Approximately 1,350 cubic yards of existing material above the base elevation of the proposed embankment would be removed to establish level grade along the wye connection. In addition to the wye connection, an asphalt road is proposed for access to the Arlington yard and the wye connection. Approximately 15,680 cubic yards of fill is proposed to be placed within formerly connected tidal wetlands. An additional 5,994 square feet of tidal wetlands habitat would be temporarily disturbed as a result of construction activities. To mitigate impacts of the proposed project on the aquatic resources in the vicinity of the permitted project, the New York City Economic Development Corporation (EDC) will assist the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's (DEC) ongoing Bridge Creek Wetlands Restoration Project through the execution of specific and mutually agreed upon work elements, such as fill removal, that will assist the DEC in its development of vegetated tidal wetlands. EDC's participation in fill removal and wetland restoration activities is currently expected to encompass an area of approximately 3 to 3.5 acres of vegetated tidal wetlands.
