[Saturday, August 23, 2008]
Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 575(b)), the Director of the Bureau of Design makes the following written finding:
The Federal Highway Administration and the Department of Transportation (Department) are planning to replace the Bebout Road Pedestrian Bridge which carries Arrowhead Trail over SR 1010 (Bebout Road) in Peters Township, Washington County.
Information describing the project, together with the associated environmental analysis, is contained in the Categorical Exclusion Evaluation/Individual Section 4(f) Evaluation that was prepared for this project.
The Bebout Road Pedestrian Bridge was once part of a railroad and is a contributing element to the Montour Railroad property. The Montour Railroad property is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, and therefore qualifies as a section 2002/section 4(f) resource. Since the Bebout Road Pedestrian Bridge is a contributing element to the eligible property, impacts to the bridge 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 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.
