Facility: Round Lake Bypass
I-87 Exit 11 to Us Rte 9
Malta, NY
Application ID: 5-4140-00162/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Project is Located: Malta, Saratoga County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to construct a 1.6-mile section of two-lane highway and reconfigure Curry Road and State Route 67/US Route 9 in order to create a bypass with the objective of removing through traffic from the Village of Round Lake. The road will begin at a proposed single-lane roundabout at Curry Road just east of I87 Exit 11, and continue without access, to the north and then east over a new 636 foot long bridge spanning Ballston Creek and associated regulated Freshwater Wetlands, and thereafter terminate at SR67/US9 with a double-lane roundabout. The proposal will impact ~4.17 acres of NYS DEC regulated Freshwater Wetlands R-13, R-14 and R-15 (all Class 1), for which the functions and benefits lost will be mitigated by creating ~6.43 acres of wetlands within the watershed.
