DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
[30 Pa.B. 5892]
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 realign Main Street and 1st Avenue within the business district of Collegeville Borough, Montgomery County to eliminate offset intersections where S.R. 0029 intersects S.R. 4031 (Main Street).
The proposed improvements consist of realigning the 1st Avenue/Main Street intersection from the current ''T'' configuration with Main Street as the major road, to a curved ''T'' alignment with 1st Avenue as the major road. Dual left turn lanes will be constructed for vehicles turning from 1st Avenue onto Main Street traveling toward the Perkiomen Creek Bridge. Associated improvements include superelevation and vertical profile adjustments, stormwater management improvements, driveway adjustments and traffic signal installation and/or coordination at 2nd Avenue, 1st Avenue, and Germantown Pike.
The realignment of Main Street will require the use of property within the National Register Boundaries of the Perkiomen Bridge Hotel, a National Register listed site, Section 4(f) and Section 2002 resource. The Pennsylvania Historic and Museum Commission has concurred that the project will have no adverse effect on the Perkiomen Hotel, and no effect on the Perkiomen Bridge, a National Register listed resource and no effect on the Schuylkill Valley Traction Company Power House, a National Register eligible resource.
I have considered the environmental, economic, social, and other effects of the proposed project as enumerated in Section 2002 of the Administrative Code, and have concluded that there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the project as designed, and all reasonable steps have been taken to minimize such effect.
No adverse environmental effect is likely to result from the construction of this project.
