[Saturday, January 26, 2008]
Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 575(b)), the Acting Director, Bureau of Design, as designated by the Secretary of Transportation, makes the following written finding:
The Department of Transportation (Department) plans to replace Frantz Bridge, SR 4025, Section 01B, over Jordan Creek in Lowhill Township, Lehigh County. Frantz Bridge is a National Register of Historic Places Listed multiple-span stone arch. The project will also require right-of-way from the Greenawald Property which is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
The effect of the project on the bridge will be mitigated through aesthetic treatment options that will be incorporated into the design of the new bridge. The existing bridge plaque will be salvaged and offered to Lowhill Township or their designee. In addition, Department will develop a report on Lehigh County's Masonry Arch Bridges.
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 effect.
No adverse environmental effect is likely to result from this project.
BRIAN G. THOMPSON, P. E.,
Acting Director, Bureau of Design
