Abstract: This environmental assessment serves as documentation of a specific project change to the construction of the Green Brook Flood Control Project. The environmental impacts of the Green Brook Flood Control Project were previously assessed in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), New York District, Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for the Proposed Plan for the Green Brook Flood Control in the Green Brook Sub-Basin, Somerset, Middlesex and Union Counties, New Jersey, filed August, 1980 and the Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS) for the Proposed Plan for the Green Brook Flood Control in the Green Brook Sub-Basin, Somerset, Middlesex and Union Counties, New Jersey, filed in May 1997. The purpose of this environmental assessment is to evaluate potential environmental impacts that were not previously addressed in the FEIS and FSEIS, to determine that the potential environmental impacts of the proposed action are not significant, and thereby determine that the proposed project change does not warrant preparation of a supplemental environmental impact statement to the FSEIS and FEIS. This environmental assessment evaluates the following proposed project change: Removal of an abandoned Conrail Bridge that crosses the Raritan River from Middlesex Borough, Middlesex County to South Bound Brook, Somerset County. The proposed demolition would involve removal of the bridge deck and piers, the northern shore abutment, the railroad embankment between River Road and the Raritan River, the remaining bridge structure over River Road and its two abutments.
