[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 improve the intersection of S. R. 2027 and S. R. 2028 located in Springfield Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
The subject project will require the acquisition of land from the Scheetz Property, the Van Resseler Property, Fairwold Estate, and Camp Hill Hall Estate. These properties have been determined to be eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The Pennsylvania Historical Museum Commission (PHMC) has concurred that this project will have an ''Adverse Effect'' on the above mentioned properties.
This project will use 0.618 hectares (1.53 acres) of the Scheetz Property, 0.207 hectares (0.511 acres) of the Van Resseler Property, 0.024 hectares (0.059 acres) of the Fairwold Estate, and 0.120 hectares (0.296 acres) of the Camp Hill Hall Estate.
Mitigation measures include the avoidance of impacts to a springhouse and wetlands located on the Scheetz Property, the implementation of a landscaping design consistent with existing vegetation to serve as a visual screen for the intersection improvements at the northern edge of S. R. 2027 and the eastern edge of S. R. 2028 along the Van Resseler Property, the reconstruction of the stone wall and entrance pillar located on the western edge of S. R. 2028 on the Fairwold Estate, and the documentation of the stone wall and steps located on the northern side of S. R. 2027 on the Camp Hill Hall Estate.
The environmental, economic, social, and other effects of the proposed project as enumerated in Section 2002 of the Administrative Code, have been considered. An adverse effect is likely to result from the improvements to the intersection of S. R. 2027 and S. R. 2028. 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.
