PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 05-1138




Butler County

[35 Pa.B. 3366]

   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 increase the number of lanes at the SR 19/SR 3022 intersection to improve safety, increase the intersection's efficiency and to reduce delay to the traveling public. The intersection improvements require the taking of approximately 0.099ha (0.244 acre) from the Frederick Meeder Farmstead/Drover's Inn and, therefore, the use of the Frederick Meeder Farmstead/Drover's Inn, which qualifies as a Section 2002/Section 4(f) resource.

   Mitigation measures to minimize harm to the resource include the following:

   1.  Access to the Frederick Meeder Farmstead/Drover's Inn will be maintained at all times and will not be modified or impacted. The property will be fully functional during construction activities.

   2.  The proposed construction activities will be limited to the minimal area necessary to conduct the required roadway improvements.

   3.  Storage of construction equipment and materials will be restricted from the Frederick Meader Farmstead.

   4.  Nonpaved areas of disturbance will be returned to current conditions when the work is completed, including revegetation.

   5.  One hundred percent of the proposed property acquisition will not occur in land within the Frederick Meader Farmstead that functions as farmland. All takes occur near the edge of the property within zones previously impacted by a utility easement and any easement acquisition will occur adjacent to the right-of-way or edge of the property, or both.

   6.  Structures are being designed to reduce scour damage from flooding. Scour will be minimized by the structures being sized appropriately (through the joint permit application process) to pass the 100-year design storm and the installation of R-8 rock choked off with R-3 will protect the abutments.

   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.
