[31 Pa.B. 3256]
Pursuant to the provisions of 71 P. S. § 2002(b), the Secretary of Transportation makes the following written finding:
The Department of Transportation plans to widen existing State Route 0016 to accommodate an eastbound truck climbing lane in Washington Township, Franklin County. The proposed project would require the use of land from the Michaux State Forest, Beartown Woods Natural Area, and the Appalachian National Scenic Trail. The Beartown Woods Natural Area and the Appalachian National Scenic Trail are within the boundaries of the Michaux State Forest. The project will require the acquisition of 0.40 hectare (0.99 acre) of land from the Michaux State Forest.
Mitigation commitments for the resources have been prepared and coordinated with all appropriate agencies for the proposed action.
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 this roadway construction project.
