PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 04-1521



Potter County

[34 Pa.B. 4528]

   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 Department of Transportation (Department) plans to remove the Fourth Street Bridge and the Seventh Street Bridge over the concrete lined channel of the Allegheny River in the Borough of Coudersport, Potter County. Both the Fourth Street Bridge and the Seventh Street Bridge have been determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The existing historic Seventh Street Bridge superstructure will be moved and reused at the Fourth Street location as a pedestrian bridge. A new structure meeting current design criteria will be constructed at the Seventh Street location.

   Information describing the project, together with the associated environmental analysis, is contained in the Categorical Exclusion Evaluation/Section 2002 Evaluation that was prepared for this project.

   Based upon studies, there is no prudent and feasible alternative to the removal of the National Register-eligible bridges over the Allegheny River.

   The Deputy Secretary for Highway Administration has considered the environmental, economic, social and other effects of the proposed project as enumerated in section 2002 of The Administrative Code of 1929 and has concluded that there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the project as designed and all reasonable steps have been taken to minimize effects.

   No adverse environmental effect is likely to result from the reconstruction of this section of highway.
