[31 Pa.B. 4135]
Pursuant to the provisions of 71 P. S. Section 2002(b), the Secretary of Transportation makes the following written finding:
The Federal Highway Administration and the Department of Transportation plan to replace the Foreman Road Bridge which carries T-843 over Amtrak Railroad tracks in West Donegal Township, Lancaster County.
The subject project will require demolition of the Foreman Road Bridge which is a contributing element of the National Register-eligible Pennsylvania Railroad Mainline.
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 such effects. A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) has been prepared and signed by all appropriate agencies for the proposed action. The MOA includes a commitment to document the Foreman Road Bridge to Pennsylvania state-level standards prior to its demolition. The documentation will include a narrative that provides a description of the Foreman Road Bridge and its association with the Pennsylvania Railroad Mainline. The photographic documentation of the bridge will follow standards established by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission. Any existing plaques on the current bridge will be salvaged either for inclusion in the new bridge or for placement with and curation by the Lancaster County Historical Society.
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.
