[30 Pa.B. 276]
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 Geigle Hill Road Bridge over the Tinicum Creek in Tinicum Township, Bucks County. The project consists of replacing the bridge with a box culvert and slightly realigning the roadway approaches. The project area is located within the Ridge Valley Rural Historic District, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The project will require the acquisition of land from two contributing resources to the historic district, as well as the removal and replacement of the existing Geigle Hill Road Bridge which is also a contributing resource to the historic district. The effect of this project on the Ridge Valley Rural Historic District will be mitigated by a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the proposed action which has been signed by all appropriate agencies. The MOA included a commitment to prepare a HABS/HAER documentation package as a permanent record of the bridge's existence.
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.
