[35 Pa.B. 1485]
Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 512(b)), the Deputy Secretary for Highway Administration makes the following written finding:
The Department of Transportation plans to replace the existing Gay Street Bridge in Phoenixville Borough, Chester County. The project includes minor approach roadway work in conjunction with replacing the bridge. The bridge is located within and is a contributing element to the National Register listed Phoenixville Historic District. The effect of this project will be mitigated through implementation of measures to be developed in coordination with the Citizens Advisory Committee, Consulting Parties and the Historic and Museum Commission. The measures will be implemented in accordance with the Programmatic Agreement between the Federal Highway Administration and the State Historic Preservation Office. Measures include the construction of four arch spans and the use of exterior treatments that are sympathetic to the Phoenixville Historic District. Additional measures may also include public history documentation and the use of historic markers, brochures and displays.
The Deputy Secretary for Highway Administration 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 effects.
GARY L. HOFFMAN, P. E.,
Deputy Secretary for Highway Administration
