Project Number: 2005-0035

Project Title: Lewis County Highway Department

Location: Long Pond Road at the Oswegatchie River and Long Pond

Comment Period Ends: June 16, 2005

Project Description: The project consists of removal of the existing single lane historic Long Pond Road Bridge over the West Branch of the Oswegatchie River, and replacing it with a two lane Ohio Thru-Truss bridge. The Oswagatchie River is a designated Recreational River pursuant to the New York State Wild, Scenic and Recreational River System Act. The work will be staged so that traffic may continue to use the bridge during construction.

Approximately 310 square feet of wetlands will be filled to construct the abutments. The abutments have been designed to minimize wetland impacts and to ensure the new bridge will not encroach upon lands of the State of New York that are part of the Adirondack Park forest preserve.

There will also be improvements to an existing parking area that serves a nearby canoe launch on the West Branch of the Oswegatchie River. The parking area and canoe launch are managed by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. As part of a Memorandum of Agreement between Lewis County Highway Department and the Federal Highway Administration; the New York State Historic Preservation Office and the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation the existing Long Pond Bridge Builders Plate will be restored to its original condition for display within the parking area. A narrative interpretive panel of similar size will also be displayed in the parking area. The new bridge will be an Ohio Thru-Truss bridge, similar in design to the existing Pony Thru-Truss Bridge. A complete photographic and historic documentation of the existing Long Pond Road Bridge will be prepared and recorded in accordance with standards developed by the Historic American Engineering Record of the National Park Service and Council requirements. Historical records of the existing bridge will be filed with the Lewis County Historical Society, New York State Archives and the Town of Croghan Historian.

A temporary revocable permit will be issued for the project by New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for work to be conducted on lands of the State of New York that are part of the Adirondack Park forest preserve. There will be no permanent impact to Forest Preserve lands, except for the removal of several mature trees required for the staged construction to maintain traffic flows.
