[34 Pa.B. 925]
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 (FHA) and the Department of Transportation are planning the construction of approximately 5 miles of two-lane arterial roadway partially on and off existing roadway alignments. The project also includes construction of a new interchange on Interstate 80 in Jefferson County.
An Environmental Assessment (EA) was prepared to evaluate the potential environmental impacts caused by the subject project. The FHA issued a Finding of No Significant Impact on January 12, 2004, determining that the Modified Revised Western Alternative will have no significant impact on the human environment. The EA and supporting documentation find that there is no practicable alternative to construction of the preferred alternative, and the proposed action includes all practicable measures to minimize harm to the environment that may result from the proposed project.
Mitigation measures will be taken to minimize harm as stipulated in the EA. The proposed project has no Section 4(f) use.
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, and it has been concluded that all reasonable planning was completed to avoid, minimize or mitigate the environmental effects that may result from the construction of this project.
No adverse environmental effect is likely to result from the proposed action.
