PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 97-1859




[27 Pa.B. 6127]

Centre County
Blair County

   Pursuant to the provisions of 71 P. S. Section 2002(b), the Secretary of Transportation makes the following written finding:

   The Department of Transportation plans to construct 28.8 kilometers (17.9 miles) of four lane limited access highway on new alignment from SR 322 (Mount Nittany Expressway) near State College in Centre County to the eastern end of SR 220 (Tyrone Expressway) near the Village of Bald Eagle in Blair County. This project will require the acquistion of right of way from the State Game Lands Number 278 and the Sellers Property which has been determined to be eligible for the National Register of Historical Places. The effect of this project on the State Game Lands Number 278 and the National Register eligible Sellers Property will be mitigated by the mitigation measures outlined in the Record of Decision and the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS)/Section 4(f) Evaluation Report that were prepared for this projet.

   I have considered the environmental, economic, social, and other effects of the proposed project as enumerated in Section 2002 of the Administrative Code, and have concluded that there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the project as designed, and all reasonable steps have been taken to minimize such effect.

   No adverse environmental effect is likely to result from the construction of this section of roadway.
