[27 Pa.B. 6127]
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 2006 over the Lackawaxen River in the Village of White Mills in Texas Township, Wayne County. The project consists of the construction of a new bridge immediately upstream of the existing bridge and the realignment of the intersection of SR 2006 and SR 6 on the eastern approach to the bridge. This project will require the acquisition of the White Mills Fire House and the Stevens Home which are contributing elements to the White Mills Historic District. The White Mills Historic District has been determined eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The effect of this project on the White Mills Historic District will be mitigated by the following measure to minimize harm to the resource.
1. A Historic Architecture Building Survey (HABS) recordation package will be prepared to the Pennsylvania State Recordation Standards as a permanent record of the White Mills Fire House.
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.
