[27 Pa.B. 4794]
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 Heckle Bridge, County Bridge No. 66 carrying Township Road T-383 (Petenbrink Road) over the Casselman River in Summit Township, Somerset County. The existing Heckle Bridge, County Bridge No. 66 has been determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The effect of this project on the Heckle Bridge, County Bridge No. 66 will be mitigated by the following measures to minimize harm to the resource.
1. A Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) documentation package will be prepared as a permanent record of the Heckle Bridge, County Bridge No. 66's existence.
2. Section 2002 resources and their boundaries will be shown on the construction plans, and protective fencing will be used to keep equipment and workers out of sensitive areas.
3. All temporary construction areas will be fenced to ensure construction activities will not move beyond the designated areas.
4. A permanent plaque commemorating the history and significance of the Heckle Bridge will be mounted on the new bridge, once construction has been completed. The PHMC will be given an opportunity to review the context of the plaque before it is erected.
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.
