[28 Pa.B. 5183]
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 Delaware, Lackawanna and Western (DL&W) Railroad Bridge in the City of Scranton, Lackawanna County. The project involves widening Keyser Avenue from an existing two and three lane roadway up to six lanes in the vicinity of the DL&W Railroad Bridge. As a consequence of the road widening, the existing DL&W Railroad Bridge will be demolished and replaced with a new bridge spanning a six lane roadway section. The DL&W Railroad Bridge is considered eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
To mitigate the replacement of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad Bridge, PennDOT shall ensure that all documentation for recordation of the property is completed and accepted by the PHMC prior to demolition.
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.
