[27 Pa.B. 3287]
Pursuant to the provisions of 71 P. S. Section 2002(b), the Secretary of Transportation makes the following written finding:
The Department of Transportation plans to replace the existing bridge carrying S. R. 4013 over Warrior's Mark Run in Franklin Township, Huntingdon County. The project will require the acquisition of 32.4 square meters (0.0086 acres) of right-of-way from the National Register listed Huntingdon Furnace Historic District. The effect of this project on the Huntingdon Furnace Historic District will be mitigated by the following measures to minimize harm to the resource.
1. The proposed bridge will incorporate false stonework in the wingwalls, applied with formliners to give the appearance of natural stone.
2. The contractor will be excluded from using any of the historic district property for staging, storage, or disposal areas.
3. Section 2002 resources and their boundaries will be shown on the construction plans, and protective fencing and other measures will be utilized to keep equipment and workers out of sensitive areas.
I have considered the environmental, economic, social, and other effects of the proposed project as enumerated in Section 2002 of the Administrative Code, and have concluded that there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the project as designed, and all reasonable steps have been taken to minimize such effect.
No adverse environmental effect is likely to result from the replacement of this bridge.
