The FHWA, in cooperation with the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), and Chautauqua County Department of Public Facilities (CCDPF) will not prepare an EIS as previously intended on a proposal to progress the construction of the Millennium Parkway in Chautauqua County, New York. The purpose of the Millennium Parkway Project is to improve tractor-trailer truck traffic access to the industrial corridor, including the Chadwick Bay Industrial Park, from New York (NY) Route 60 (Bennett Road). Based upon further review of the project and related impacts it was determined that the scope of the project would be reduced to use an alignment that would be comprised of a combination of reconstruction of the existing portion of Talcott Street between NY Route 60 and CR 81, and the construction of a roadway on a new alignment, approximately 1000 meters through a previously disturbed, vacant area between CR 81 and CR 82. The improvements being considered will not have a significant impact on the environment. In light of the minimal environmental impacts a Categorical Exclusion with Documentation is being prepared to progress the project.
