[27 Pa.B. 4398]
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 SR 4011 (Church Road) over the North Branch of Schoolhouse Run in Upper Providence Township, Montgomery County. The project will require the acquisition of 483.09 square meters (5200 square feet) of right-of-way from the Vanderslice/Custer Property, which has been determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The effect of this project on the Vanderslice/Custer Property will be mitigated by the following measures to minimize harm to the resource.
1. Selective tree plantings will be placed in areas disturbed by construction activities.
2. The floor of the proposed culvert will be depressed 12 inches below the stream bed elevation to provide a low flow channel for aquatic life.
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 con-cluded 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.
