PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 99-431



Cambria County

Somerset County

[29 Pa.B. 1449]

   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 realign and reconstruct approximately 640 meters (2,100 feet) of SR 271 in Upper Yoder Township, Cambria County and Conemaugh Township, Somerset County. This project will require the acquisition of 0.842 hectares (2.08 acres) of right of way from the Laurel Ridge State Park. The effect of this project on the Laurel Ridge State Park will be mitigated by the mitigation measures outlined in the Categorical Exclusion Evaluation/Programmatic Section 4(f) Evaluation. The Programmatic Section 4(f) Evaluation meets the same requirements as Section 2002 of Pennsylvania Act 120.

   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 prudent and feasible 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 reconstruction of this section of highway.
