[33 Pa.B. 2829]
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 Federal Highway Administration and the Department of Transportation (Department) are planning the replacement of the bridge that carries S.R. 0008 (Butler Street) over Heth's Run in the City of Pittsburgh, Allegheny County. The project will require the acquisition of approximately 0.3 ha (0.75 acre) of right-of-way or 0.2% of the total property from Highland Park, which is owned by the City of Pittsburgh and is a Section 2002/Section 4(f) resource.
The subject project is considered a Level 2 Categorical Exclusion Evaluation (CEE) in accordance with 23 CFR 771.117(d)(1) and (3) (relating to categorical exclusions), as published in the August 28, 1987, Federal Register.
It has been determined that there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the use of the resource and that necessary planning has been incorporated into the project to minimize harm to the resource.
Mitigation measures will be taken to minimize harm, as stipulated in the CEE/Programmatic Section 4(f) Evaluation, including revegetation of all disturbed areas upon completion of the project.
The environmental, economic, social and other effects of the proposed project, as enumerated in section 2002 of The Administrative Code of 1929, have been considered. It has been concluded that there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the project as designed and all reasonable steps have been taken to minimize effects.
