Centre County

[38 Pa.B. 5402]
[Saturday, September 27, 2008]

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

   The Federal Highway Administration and the Department of Transportation are planning to widen SR 45 to provide a continuous center left-turn lane from the intersection of SR 45 and SR 144 in the Village of Old Fort and continuing westbound for approximately 0.73 mile. This project will require approximately 1.2 acres of right-of-way from the National Register of Historic Places eligible Penns Valley and Brush Valley Historic District, the Earlystown School property and the Freeman House property.

   The subject project is considered a Level 2 Categorical Exclusion in accordance with 23 CFR Part 771.117 as published in the August 28, 1987, Federal Register.

   The Penns Valley and Brush Valley Historic District, the Earlystown School and the Freeman House are section 2002/section 4(f) resources. Impact to these resources will constitute a use of the section 2002/section 4(f) resources.

   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 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.

Director, Bureau of Design
