Grand Island, NY 14072 -1710
Facility: Bike Path Connector
South Ln to EAST-WEST Park Rd
Grand Island, NY
Application ID: 9-1446-00589/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Project is Located: Grand Island, Erie County
Project Description:
Widening and resurfacing the existing Linear Park Bike Path (owned by the Town of Grand Island) from an eight-foot wide trail to a twelve-foot wide trail through a portion of the Grand Island Boulevard (TW-9) Wetland and its regulated 100 foot wide adjacent area.  From the north end of this existing trail, there is currently a trail through the woods (TW- 20 Wetland) connecting the Linear Park Bike Path to East-West Park Road in Buckhorn Island State Park.  A second portion of the project will consist of building a twelve-foot wide multi-use path along the 650 feet of trail, a portion of which is within the TW-20 Wetland and its regulated 100 foot wide adjacent area.  Because this is an upgrading of an existing trail, it will follow the same alignment, and there will be minimal disturbance to the existing vegetation and trees.  The remaining new multi-use trail is within portions of the regulated 100 foot wide adjacent area of the TW-20 and Buckhorn Island State Park (TW-19) Wetlands.  A new bike trail will be created by paving a six-foot wide shoulder along both sides of the East-West Park Road from Baseline Road to the NYS Thruway overpass (approximately 1.21 miles - each side).  The TW-9, TW-19 and TW-20 Wetlands are class I wetlands.

Meyer's RV Superstore is located at 5533 Camp Road.  As mitigation for impacts to 0.8 acre of Federally jurisdictional wetland on the project site, 1.67 acres of  shallow/deep water emergent marsh will be created at the Town of Hamburg Lakeview Recreation Area site (commonly known as the "Nike Base") located at 2720 Lakeview Road.
