PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 99-562



[29 Pa.B. 1793]

Lancaster 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 replace the existing Bridge at Hinkletown carrying S. R. 0322 over the Conestoga River in Lancaster County with a wider structure immediately upstream of the existing structure.

   The construction of the project will require the demolition of the Hinkletown Mill and associated Dam immediately adjacent to the bridge.

   The effect of this project on the Hinkletown Mill and associated Dam will be mitigated by the following measures to minimize harm to the resource:

   1.  A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) will be written between the U. S. Corps of Engineers (who will be issuing a Section 404 permit for the project) and the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. A recordation to state standards has been completed for the Hinkletown Mill and associated Dam. The documentation includes a short narrative on the property, photographic documentation of the property, and a sketch-level site plan and floor plan of the Mill. This permanent record constitutes adequate mitigation for the removal of the Hinkletown Mill and associated Dam.

   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 prudent and feasible alternative to the project as designed, and all reasonable steps have been taken to minimize such effects.

   No adverse environmental effect is likely to result from this bridge replacement project.
