[33 Pa.B. 2947]
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) plan to replace the SR 2041 bridge over Otter Creek in Chanceford Township, York County.
The subject project will require use of the National Register eligible Centennial Mill and Miller's House property. The project will require acquisition of 0.77 hectare (1.91 acre) of land from the Centennial Mill and Miller's House property.
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 the effects. A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) has been prepared and signed by all appropriate agencies for the proposed action to take into account the effect of the proposed undertaking on historic properties. Mitigation measures have been stipulated in the MOA. As stipulated in the MOA that was prepared for this project, the Department will ensure that the design of the proposed bridge is compatible with the historic and architectural qualities of the Centennial Mill and Miller's House to minimize the visual impact of the project on the historic property. The design of the new bridge will incorporate muted tones in the color of the concrete and the use of form liners on the abutments to give the appearance of stone.
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 andprudent alternative to the project as designed and all reasonable steps have been taken to minimize the effect.
