DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
[32 Pa.B. 4787]
Under section 2002(b) of the Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 512(b)), the Secretary of Transportation makes the following written finding:
The Department of Transportation (Department) plans to replace the existing Longenecker Road Bridge carrying SR 4003 over Little Chickies Creek in Rapho and East Donegal Townships and Mount Joy Borough, Lancaster County. The project will require the acquisition of land from the Jacob Lindemuth and Peter Lindemuth properties. These properties have been determined to be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
Impacts to the properties will be mitigated by measures as outlined in the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the project which was signed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers, the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Officer and the Department.
The MOA stipulates that the design of the proposed bridge be in keeping with the historic nature of the area and the visual effect of the new bridge be minimized by preserving the existing roadway patterns and proportions as much as possible while satisfying current safety requirements.
The Secretary has considered the environmental, economic, social and other effects of the proposed project as enumerated in section 2002 of The Administrative Code of 1929 and has concluded that there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the project as designed, and all reasonable steps have been taken to minimize the effect.
