Montgomery And Fulton Counties - NYS DOT as lead agency, has determined that the proposed PIN 2044.61, Route 30: Amsterdam to Voorhees Road Safety Improvements, Town of Amsterdam, Montgomery County & Town of Perth, Fulton County will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves approximately 4.3 kilometers of Route 30 highway improvements along with select intersection improvements from the Amsterdam North City Line to Voorhees Road. Route 30 will receive a single course asphalt concrete overlay from Sunset Road north a distance of approximately 300 meters and will be widened out to four and five lanes from approximately Wallins Corners Road to Log City Road with construction of new concrete curb and closed drainage on both sides of the highway. The remainder of Route 30 to Voorhees Road will be widened to a three-lane uncurbed section with open ditches on both sides of the highway. A 4.2 meter wide continuous two-way left turn median will be constructed along Route 30 from approximately Wallins Corners Road to Voorhees Road. Log City Road (CR 17) will be realigned a distance of approximately 550 meters to tie into Maple Ave Extension intersection at Route 30. The remaining portion of Log City Road will be resurfaced, severed from Route 30 with construction of a turnaround, and tied into the realigned Log City Road section. Wallins Corners Road will be widened to accommodate the addition of turning and travel lanes for a distance of approximately 120 meters. The existing traffic signals at Route 30/Golf Course Road and Route 30/Wallins Corners Road will be replaced. A new traffic signal will be installed at the intersection of Route 30/Maple Ave Extension/realigned Log City Road. Sidewalk will be constructed on the east side of Route 30 from Sunset Road to Wallins Corners Road and then continue on the west side of Route 30 from Wallins Corners Road to Lorraine Boulevard. New box beam guide rail will be installed at various locations throughout the project. As part of SPDES requirements, a stormwater detention pond will be constructed behind the Burger King Restaurant. Federal wetlands will be impacted due to project activities. During preliminary design wetland impacts were mitigated through avoidance and minimization techniques. During construction wetland replacement will be employed to offset impacts. One commercial property will be acquired and relocated due to the realignment of Log City Road at Route 30. One commercial property will be acquired due to proximity impacts of the widened Route 30. The project is located in the Town of Amsterdam in Montgomery County & Town of Perth in Fulton County.
