[Saturday, July 28, 2007]
Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 512(b)), the Acting Director of the Bureau of Design makes the following written finding:
The Federal Highway Administration and the Department of Transportation are planning the construction of a multiuse recreational trail facility that will follow an abandoned Penn Central railroad corridor in the City of Corry and Wayne Township, Erie County. The proposed section of Corry Trail is approximately 4.2 miles long, beginning at the Corry Little League--Plastics Baseball Field in the City of Corry and following the existing railroad bed north to the Pennsylvania/New York State line.
Information describing the project, together with the associated environmental analysis, is contained in the Categorical Exclusion Evaluation/Section 2002 Evaluation that was prepared for this project.
The Corry Little Leagues--Plastics Baseball Field is a Section 2002/Section 4(f) resource. Impact to this resource will constitute a net beneficial use of the Section 2002/Section 4(f) resource.
Based upon studies, there is no prudent and feasible alternative to the proposed action.
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 take to minimize such effects.
