DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
[36 Pa.B. 891]
Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 512(b)), the Deputy Secretary for Highway Administration makes the following written finding:
The Department of Transportation (Department) and Allegheny County are planning to remove the Chartiers Creek Bridge No. 15 (bridge). The bridge carries Turner Road over Chartier's Creek between the Borough of Rosslyn Farms and the City of Pittsburgh in Allegheny County. The bridge has been closed since 1987.
The bridge is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places and, therefore, qualifies as a Section 2002 resource. The State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) has concurred in a determination of ''Adverse Effect'' upon the resource.
Based upon studies, there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the proposed action. Mitigation measures will be taken to minimize harm as stipulated in the Environmental Document, the Section 2002 Evaluation and the associated Memorandum of Understanding including documentation of the bridge to Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) standards.
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. 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 the effects.

Deputy Secretary for Highway Administration
