[Saturday, March 27, 2010]
Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1920 (71 P. S. § 512(b)), the Director of the Bureau of Design makes the following written finding:
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Department of Transportation (Department) are planning to replace the Millers Station Bridge, which carries SR 1016 over French Creek in Rockdale Township, Crawford County.
The project will require the use of the Millers Station Bridge, which is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, and qualifies as a section 4(f)/section 2002 resource.
A Level 2 Categorical Exclusion Evaluation (CEE) and a Nationwide/Programmatic section 4(f) Evaluation for Projects that Necessitate the Use of Historic Bridges were developed for the subject bridge replacement project to evaluate the potential environmental impacts caused by the subject project.
The FHWA approved the Programmatic section 4(f) Evaluation on February 12, 2010, and the Level 2 CEE on March 4, 2010.
The Level 2 CEE and supporting documentation find there is no practicable alternative to the proposed project, and the proposed action includes all practicable measures to minimize harm to the environment that may result from the proposed project.
Mitigation measures will be taken to minimize harm as stipulated in the Level 2 CEE, the Nationwide/Programmatic section 4(f) Evaluation for Projects that Necessitate the Use of Historic Bridges, and the associated Memorandum of Agreement.
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 such effects.
