Project Description:

A permit was issued to the applicant for disturbances to NYS Freshwater Wetland W-5, Class 1, and the Saw Mill River [Water Index Number H-4, Class B(T)], to address flooding on the Saw Mill River Parkway by raising and reconstructing approximately 7,600 linear feet of pavement and replacing two bridges. The applicant has requested a modification to the permit for the addition of two temporary gravel access roads and stream crossings to safely replace the bridges. This modification will result in approximately 40 linear feet of additional temporary disturbance to the Saw Mill River, approximately 2,095 square feet (0.048 acres) of temporary disturbance to the Freshwater Wetland, and approximately 1,143 square feet (0.026 acres) of temporary disturbance to the 100-foot adjacent area. The sites will be restored to their original condition when the temporary access roads are removed.
