Agenda (Subject to Amendment)

Need for guidance on what to do about the following:

  1. Funding gap
    1. Is there a time limit on TAP and Multi-Modal funds to be spent?
    2. Are Erdman Anthony and NYSDOT willing to pause for a period of time?
    3. What other supplemental funding options are available?
    4. What have other similar communities done?
    5. Potential cost-saving options:
      1. What non-standard trail design/construction options are available?
        1. Elimination of some/all of fencing on approaches
        2. Extension of abutments into limited-access portions of Rt. 13 corridor
        3. Reduction of bridge span, and moving walls closer to Rt. 13
        4. Narrowing trail on approach to less than 10` in width (reduce by 2′)
        5. Narrowing trail on bridge to less than 10’ in width (reduce by2′)
        6. Reducing thickness of trail sub-base where it is over historic rail bed
      2. Are there other potential cost saving or scope reduction alternatives?
      3. What are the lowest cost modifications of the bridge and trail design that would meet funding standards?
  2. ROW acquisition
    1. With acreage numbers provided, can NYSDOT get land acquisition estimates? How soon?
    2. How can NYSDOT (and we) persist in non-coercive efforts with landowners?
  3. Arguments for Bridge vs alternate routes
