Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Lewis, Oneida, St. Lawrence, Saratoga, Warren, Washington Counties - The New York State Department Of Transportation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) Guidelines for the Adirondack Park will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. This proposed guidance document sets forth procedures with respect to activities involving alterations of highways and Right- of- Ways under the jurisdiction of the NYSDOT in the Adirondack Park. These guidelines are a result of the continued collaborative efforts of the Adirondack Park Agency (APA), NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), and NYS Department of Transportation (NYSDOT).

Department guidelines for activities within the Park were first initiated in the 1970's, with the intent to identify design standards that would be applied to NYSDOT projects. The revised guidelines are intended to ensure that the established procedures and recommended practices are applied to all NYSDOT projects and activities involving the maintenance, rehabilitation, reconstruction (including widening and relocation) and new construction of highways within the Adirondack Park.

The NYSDOT Guidelines for the Adirondack Park may be found online at: http://www.dot.state.ny.us/eab/greenbook.html

The guidelines are also available for viewing at the following state offices, NYSDOT, (Utica, Watertown, Schenectady, and Albany ) NYSDEC (Utica, Watertown, Ray Brook, Warrensburg, and Albany) and the APA (Ray Brook). Additionally, hard copies of the Guidelines will be available at all local libraries in the Adirondack Park.

The New York State Department of Transportation will be taking comments for the 45 day comment period. Any questions and comments may be sent to Edward Frantz, NYSDOT contact person.

The guidelines apply to all NYSDOT highways, facilities, and Right- of- Ways in the Adirondack Park in the Counties of Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Herkimer, Lewis, Oneida, Saratoga, St. Lawrence, Warren, and Washington.
