[Saturday, December 3, 2011]
Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 512(b)), the Director of the Bureau of Project Delivery as delegated by the Secretary of Transportation makes the following written finding:
The Department of Transportation (Department) plans to replace the Brown's Bridge (SR 1026, Section 01B), which crosses the Pine Creek in Pike Township, Berks County.
In accordance with section 2002 of The Administrative Code of 1929 establishing the Department, a Level 1B Environmental Documentation (ED) has been prepared to obtain environmental clearance for the removal of the Centennial Bridge, which is available in the CE/EA Expert System.
Two Section 2002 resources are identified in the project area. Brown's Bridge, which is not listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), and the Northern Oley Valley Historic District, which is listed as eligible for the NRHP. Brown's Bridge is considered a contributing element to the District. The removal of Brown's Bridge will have an adverse effect on the Northern Oley Valley Historic District. In addition to the replacement of Brown's Bridge, this project includes adjustment of the approach roadway alignment to improve the geometry of the curve and provide a smoother transition across the bridge. A Level 1B ED has been prepared to obtain environmental clearance for the replacement of the Brown's Bridge, SR 1026 over Pine Creek. This ED takes into account all environmental features and the proposed engineering features incorporated into the proposed action.
