[Saturday, April 9, 2011]
Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 512(b)), the Director of the Bureau of Project Delivery, as delegated by the Secretary of Transportation, makes the following finding:
The Department of Transportation (Department) is planning a project to replace the bridge that carries Lower State Road (SR 2089) over the Neshaminy Creek in Doylestown Township, Bucks County. The project involves the placement of a utility pole within the Department right-of-way, but the guy wire supporting the pole extends into the boundary of the National Register-eligible McHenry Farmstead. The placement of the guy wire will result in minimal disturbance to the resource. No effect will occur to the McHenry Farmstead.
In accordance with section 2002 of The Administrative Code of 1929 establishing the Department, a Level-1b Categorical Exclusion Evaluation (CEE) has been developed for the subject project along with a Determination of Section 4(f) De Minimis Use/Section 2002 No Adverse Use document to evaluate the potential environmental impacts caused by the subject project. The document 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 taken to minimize harm as stipulated in the Level-1b CEE Evaluation and the Determination of Section 4(f) De Minimis Use/Section 2002 No Adverse Use document.
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.
