PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 00-535




Montgomery County

[30 Pa.B. 1701]

   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 replace the bridge, which carries S.R. 4008 (Kratz Road) over Skippack Creek in Evansburg State Park, Montgomery County. The proposed project involves the replacement of the existing three-span, stone/masonry arch structure with a two-span concrete box beam bridge on the existing alignment. The existing bridge has been closed to vehicular traffic since 1994.

   The proposed project will require acquisition of approximately 0.10 acre of right-of-way from Evansburg State Park. Evansburg State Park overlaps the Evansburg Historic District, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) and is located approximately 2.65 miles south of the Kratz Road Bridge. Additionally, the area encompassed by Evansburg State Park outside the NRHP listed Historic District is a NRHP eligible Historic District as an increase of the NRHP listed Evansburg Historic District. The Evansburg State Park, the NRHP listed Evansburg Historic District and the NRHP eligible Evansburg Historic District qualify for protection under Act 120, Section 2002. The Kratz Road Bridge is a contributing element within the NRHP eligible Evansburg Historic District.

   Mitigation measures to be taken to minimize harm to the Section 2002 resources will be implemented as described in the CEE/Section 2002 Evaluation and in the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), which has been written and will be executed between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (who will be issuing a Section 404 Permit for the project) and the Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office.

   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.

   No adverse environmental effect is likely to result from the project.
