[40 Pa.B. 2193]
[Saturday, April 24, 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 finding:
The Department of Transportation (Department) is planning to close and remove the at-grade crossing of the Amtrak Railroad corridor on Newcomer Road in Rapho Township, Lancaster County. The project will require minor amounts of right-of-way and temporary easements from the Heller Farmstead and the Pennsylvania Railroad/Keystone Corridor (now Amtrak) that are eligible for the National Register of Historic Places and, therefore qualify as section 2002 resources.
In accordance with section 2002 of Pennsylvania Act 120 establishing the Department, a ''Determination of Section 4(f) De Minimis Use Section 2002 No Adverse use'' has been prepared to evaluate the potential environmental impacts caused by the subject project. The document is available in the CE/EA Expert System.
Based upon studies, there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the proposed action and section 106 of the Historic Preservation Act studies have determined that there are No Historic Properties Affected by the project as planned.
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 such effects.
