Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Syracuse, Onondaga County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to modify the design of the Southeast Extension of the Loop the Lake Trail. The trail connects to the Onondaga Creekwalk and Lake Lounge, traverses approximately 1,972 linear feet to a turnaround point, then returns to a common start/end point. The proposal includes an ADA-compliant, multi-use trail along Onondaga Lake and through NYS Class 1 Freshwater Wetland SYW-12 consisting of: a proposed 385 linear foot berm structure along Onondaga Lake Shoreline (in place of the previously proposed 10' wide steel pile boardwalk), a 10' wide helical pile boardwalk through the wetland, and a 10' wide stone dust trail some of which is through associated wetland adjacent areas. The newly proposed berm includes water ecological features such as turtle basking logs, root wads and aquatic plug planting. There is no additional tree removal or other permanent impacts associated with this modification. The applicant has proposed to close the trail from December 1 through March 31st, to avoid impacts to winter roosting habitat for state listed (threatened) Bald Eagles.
