In 1996, FHWA, NYSTA and DOT initiated an environmental review of the construction of landside facilities in Rockland County to support a high-speed ferry service between Rockland County and Manhattan.
A public scoping meeting was held on September 30, 1996 at Hyack High School, 360 Christian Herald Road, Upper Nyack, NY from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The scoping meeting provided information about the proposed project and allowed the public the opportunity to identify issues and concerns they believed should be addressed in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Comments and suggestions were invited from all interested parties.
At present, FHWA, NYSTA and DOT will not exercise the option to prepare the draft EIS and are terminating the environmental review of the proposed action. This decision assumes that landside facilities to support a high speed ferry service between Rockland County and Manhattan would not be constructed by the project sponsors.Start Signature
