DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
[28 Pa.B. 3118]
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 McLeans Station Road Bridge over Macoby Creek in Marlborough Township, Montgomery County. The project consists of replacing a two span pony truss with a two span steel arch structure on the existing alignment shifted slightly to the south. The existing Pratt pony truss is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The effect of this project on the McLeans Station Road Bridge will be mitigated by the following measures to minimize harm to the resources.
1. A bridge recordation report will be prepared as required by Section 110(b) of the National Historic Preservation Act so that there will be a permanent record of its existence.
2. Every effort will be made to find a location where the existing trusses could be preserved and adaptively reused. Montgomery County will store the truss members upon their removal. If the County has no use for the trusses, they will be made available to the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for use in state parks.
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.
