[49 Pa.B. 805]
[Saturday, February 16, 2019]
Under section 2002 of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P.S. § 512) establishing the Department of Transportation (Department), the Director of the Bureau of Project Delivery, as delegated by the Secretary of Transportation, makes the following written finding:
The Federal Highway Administration and the Department are planning to construct the southern section of the Central Susquehanna Valley Transportation (CSVT) project between the Selinsgrove Interchange of United States (US) Routes 11/15 in Monroe Township, Snyder County, and the Pennsylvania (PA) Route 45 Interchange on PA Route 147 in West Chillisquaque Township, Northumberland County.
The overall CSVT project involves the construction of approximately 13 miles of new four-lane limited access highway that will connect US Routes 11/15 near Selinsgrove (Snyder County) to US Route 15 near Winfield (Union County) to PA Route 147 near Montandon (Northumberland County). The project was subsequently split into a northern section and a southern section. Within the southern section, a two-mile long portion of the alignment (between Fisher Road and Sunbury Road) needed to be modified to avoid constructing the new highway on two existing fly ash waste basins, as previously planned.
Information describing the project, with the associated environmental analysis, is contained in the Supplemental Environmental Assessment that was prepared for this project. 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 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 effects.
