PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 04-778



Armstrong and Clarion Counties

[34 Pa.B. 2398]

   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 Federal Highway Administration (FHA) and the Department of Transportation are planning to replace the Foxburg Bridge, which carries SR 0058 over the Allegheny River between Hovey Township, Armstrong County, and Foxburg Borough, Clarion County. The project will also include roadway approach work necessary to tie into existing SR 0058 on both ends of the Foxburg Bridge.

   The existing Foxburg Bridge is a contributing element to the Foxburg Historic District, which is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places and is, therefore, a Section 2002/Section 4(f) resource. Removal of the existing Foxburg Bridge will constitute a use of the Section 2002/Section 4(f) resource through the loss of an element that contributes to the significance of the resource.

   The subject project was evaluated as an Environmental Assessment (EA) for which a Finding of No Significant Impact was issued by the FHA on March 30, 2004.

   Mitigation measures will be taken to minimize harm as stipulated in the EA, the Final Section 4(f) Evaluation and other supporting documentation listed in the EA. Several of the mitigation measures are as follows:

   *  Recordation of the existing Foxburg Bridge to Historic American Engineering Record standards.

   *  Consultation with the Historical and Museum Commission during final design to ensure the new structure will be compatible with the character of the Foxburg Historic District.

   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 use of the Section 2002/Section 4(f) resource and the project is planned to mitigate impacts to the Section 2002/Section 4(f) resource through the previously referenced mitigation measures.
