Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 575(b)), the Director of the Bureau of Design, as designated by the Secretary for Transportation, makes the following written finding:
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Department of Transportation are planning to replace two bridges in Clymer Borough, Indiana County. The bridges carry SR 0403 over Two Lick Creek and Dixon Run.
The FHWA has determined that this project will have a de minimis use of two baseball fields, one owned by Clymer Little League and the other owned by Clymer Borough, which qualify as section 4(f)/section 2002 resources.
Therefore, a Programmatic Section 4(f) De minimis Use checklist has been prepared and approved to evaluate the potential environmental impacts caused by the subject project. It also serves as the section 2002 Evaluation to evaluate the potential impacts to section 4(f)/section 2002 resources caused by the subject project.
Based upon studies, there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the proposed action. Mitigation measures will be taken to minimize harm as stipulated in the Categorical Exclusion Evaluation and the Programmatic Section 4(f) De minimis Use checklist.
The environmental, economic, social and other effects of the proposed project as enumerated in section 2002 of The Administrative Code 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.
