DEC to Hold Informational Meeting on Beach Road Projects in Lake George
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will host a public informational meeting on the proposed road and parking lot modification projects on Thursday, November 14, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Lake George Town Hall, 20 Old Post Road, Lake George.
DEC will provide information and answer questions regarding Phase II and Phase III of the Beach Road stormwater management project to update the public on what is proposed and the timeline for completing the project. Both Phase II and Phase III projects are funded through Governor Cuomo's New York Works initiative.
Phase II of the project involves construction on the portion of Beach Road on DEC-managed lands. When the project is completed, the road will be paved with porous pavement and contain stormwater management infrastructure, matching the work done by Warren County on Beach Road in Phase I.
Phase III involves the parking area for DEC's Lake George Beach (aka Million Dollar Beach) and relocation of the adjacent boat launch. Use of porous asphalt and drainage collection piping will be maximized in the reconstruction of the parking lot.
DEC proposes to site the new boat launch east of the Lake George Bath House. The proposed design for the boat launch includes a site for a portable boat washing station.
Individuals who need directions to Lake George Town Hall should call the Town at 518-668-5722.
