[41 Pa.B. 1982]
[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 written finding:
The Norfolk Southern Railroad (NSR) with State transportation funding assistance proposes to construct and operate a new intermodal facility in order to improve freight transportation capacity in its south central service region. The proposed project consists of the construction of the new intermodal facility and several associated road improvements. The proposed site is located on an approximate 150-acre site immediately adjacent and parallel to the existing NSR Harrisburg—Hagerstown mainline at milepost HW-66 in Antrim Township, Franklin County.
The project will require the acquisition of right-of-way from two farms which are eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places; the Dr. Robert Johnston Farm and the Samuel Shindle Farm. The 2-acre take from the Johnston Farm and the approximate 5.5-acre take from the Shindle Farm will constitute Section 2002 resource use.
In accordance with section 2002 of The Administrative Code of 1929 establishing the Department of Transportation, a Level-2 Environmental Document has been developed for the subject project to evaluate the potential environmental impacts caused by the subject project along with two Determination of Section 4(f) De Minimis Use Section 2002 No Adverse Use Historic Properties documents. The Section 4(f) documents also serve as the Section 2002 Evaluation. The approved documents are available in the CE/EA Expert System. 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. Based upon studies, there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the use of the Section 2002 resources for the proposed action. Mitigation measures will be taken to minimize harm as stipulated in the Level-2 ED.
