Butler County

[38 Pa.B. 423]
[Saturday, January 19, 2008]

   Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 512(b)), the Secretary of Transportation makes the following written finding:

   The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Department of Transportation (Department) are planning to replace the Senn Bridge which carries Evergreen Mill Road (T-323) over the Little Connoquenessing Creek in Jackson Township, Butler County. Therefore, this project will require the use of the Senn Bridge which is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places and, therefore, qualifies as a Section 4(f)/Section 2002 resource.

   In accordance with section 2002 of Pennsylvania Act 120 establishing the Department, a Level-2 Categorical Exclusion Evaluation has been developed for the subject project along with a ''Nationwide/Programmatic Section 4(f) Evaluation for Projects that Necessitate the Use of Historic Bridges'' checklist to evaluate the potential environmental impacts caused by the subject project. The checklist also serves as the Section 2002 Evaluation. The approved documents are available in the CE/EA Expert System.

   Based upon studies, there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the proposed action. Mitigation measures will be implemented to minimize harm as stipulated in the Level-2 CEE, the ''Nationwide/Programmatic Section 4(f) Evaluation for Projects that Necessitate the Use of Historic Bridges'' and the associated Memorandum of Agreement.

   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.
