PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 02-1610



Warren County

[32 Pa.B. 4551]

   Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 512(b)), the Secretary of Transportation makes the following written finding:

   The Department of Transportation (Department) plans to replace the existing Fifth Avenue Bridge, carrying Fifth Avenue over the Conewango Creek, in the City of Warren, Warren County. The existing Fifth Avenue Bridge has been determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The existing Fifth Avenue Bridge is also a contributing element of the National Register eligible Warren Historic District. The effect of this project on the existing Fifth Avenue Bridge and Warren Historic District will be mitigated by the following measures to minimize harm to the resources.

   1.  A marketing plan for the Fifth Avenue Bridge will be prepared in consultation with the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO). This plan shall include an information package about the bridge, a distribution list of potential purchasers or transferees and an advertising plan.

   2.  The existing Fifth Avenue Bridge shall be recorded to Historic American Building Survey/Historic American Engineering Record Standard.

   3.  The new bridge design shall be developed in coordination with the SHPO and submitted for review and comments.

   4.  A permanent display concerning bridges and/or transportation history in Warren shall be developed in consultation with the SHPO and be placed in a public location.

   The Secretary has considered the environmental, economic, social and other effects of the proposed project as enumerated in section 2002 of The Administrative Code of 1929. 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 effect.

   No adverse environmental effect is likely to result from the removal of this bridge.
