Negative Declaration

Delaware County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Amendment of the Treaty Line Unit Management Plan (UMP), Delaware Reforestation Area #5 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Treaty Line UMP has been amended to provide for the construction of a snowmobile bridge that will span a small stream adjacent to the Shear Road Truck Trail. The bridge will be constructed of 10 treated utility poles for stringers and wooden decking. The bridge will be approximately 24 feet long and 8 feet wide. Approximately 200 feet of snowmobile trail will be cleared for the approach and exit to the bridge. About 7 trees will be cut. The bridge and associated trail, will allow public access to the DEC snowmobile trail system on the Shear Road Truck Trail from a proposed snowmobile trail that will begin in Oquaga Creek State Park and continue along the shoulder of Delaware County Route 20 to the intersection of the Shear Road Truck Trail. The bridge will eliminate a potentially dangerous road crossing at the intersection of these two roads. The project is located at Treaty Line State Forest, Town of Masonville.
