DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
[29 Pa.B. 617]
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 single span, concrete encased steel I-beam bridge which carries Westbourne Road (S.R. 2006) over Goose Creek in Westtown Township, Chester County. The bridge is to be replaced on the existing alignment with an adjacent box beam bridge. Roadway approaches will be improved approximately 70 meters (200 ft.) east and west of the bridge. The approach work is primarily to provide transition to the new structure.
The proposed project will require acquisition of 125.4 square meters (1,350 square feet) of right-of-way from the Twin Brook Farm property adjacent to the existing roadway. The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) has determined that this project will have ''No Effect'' on the Twin Brook Farm property, a property eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. This resource is protected by Section 2002 of Pennsylvania Act 120.
Mitigation measures will be taken to minimize harm as stipulated in the Categorical Exclusion/Section 2002 Evaluation Report.
The environmental, economic, social, and other effects of the proposed project as enumerated in Section 2002 of the Administrative Code, have been considered. It has been concluded that there is no prudent and feasible alternative to the project as designed and all reasonable steps have been taken to minimize such effects.
No adverse environmental effect is likely to result from the replacement of the bridge.
