PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 98-688



Wayne County

[28 Pa.B. 2095]

   Pursuant to the provisions of 71 P. S. Section 2002(b), the Secretary of Transportation makes the following written finding:

   The Department of Transportation plans to rehabilitate the existing Lemnitzer Bridge which carries Brown Street over the Lackawaxen River in Honesdale Borough, Wayne County. The project consists of rehabilitation of the existing bridge by replacing the superstructure and minor spall repair to the substructure. Minor approach road work will also be involved. The adjacent Honesdale Coal Company Elevator, which has been determined to be eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, will be removed to correct a sub-standard sight distance problem at the westerly approach. The project will also require the acquisition of right-of-way from the land of the abandoned Honesdale Coal Company Elevator property. The effect of this project on the Honesdale Coal Company Elevator property will be mitigated by the following measures to minimize harm to the resource.

   1.  Prior to commencement of construction activities associated with the undertaking, the Department will ensure that the Honesdale Coal Company Elevator is documented to the standards of the Pennsylvania State Historic and Museum Commission (PHMC).

   2.  Concurrently with the execution of the construction contract, PennDOT will consult with the PHMC to fabricate and erect a state historical marker near the site of the Honesdale Coal Company Elevator.

   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 the rehabilitation of this bridge.
