[Saturday, December 8, 2007]
Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 572(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 a roadway reconstruction and widening and bridge improvement project that involves 2.8 miles of roadway, ten bridge structures, and four retaining walls in Bensalem and Middletown Townships, Bucks County.
The subject project is considered a Level 1B Categorical Exclusion in accordance with 23 CFR Part 771.117(d), Items 1 and 3, as published in the August 28, 1987 Federal Register.
The Reading Railroad--NY Line (CSX Trenton Line) is an eligible resource on the National Register of Historic Places, and is, therefore, a Section 2002/Section 4(f) resource. Impacts to the Reading Railroad--NY Line (CSX Trenton Line) will constitute a 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 taken to minimize the effects.

Acting Director, Bureau of Design
