Perry County

   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 construct SR 2002, Section 004, the Dellville Road Bridge No. 1 Replacement Project in Perry County.

   The purpose of this bridge replacement project is to eliminate weight restrictions, improve horizontal geometry and maintain safe and adequate movement of various modes of travel while minimizing disruption to established travel patterns and farming operations.

   The proposed action is to replace the existing one-lane Pratt truss bridge that carries SR 2002, Dellville Road, over Sherman's Creek in Penn and Wheatfield Townships in Perry County. Alternate 3, the preferred alternative, begins at the vicinity of the intersection of Glutz Hole Road and Dellville Road in Wheatfield Township, shifts the alignment to the south, traverses Sherman's Creek south of the existing bridge with a new 300-foot bridge, with two 11-foot lanes and 4-foot shoulders, realigns the intersection with Ebersole Road and ties into the existing roadway approach approximately 300 feet east of Ebersole Road in Penn Township.

   Alternatives were evaluated as required by section 2002 of Act 120. Alternate 3 has been identified as the alternative that satisfies the purpose and needs associated with this project and best balances impacts to the socio-economic, cultural and natural environment in the study area. Alternate 3 will require the acquisition of 0.21 hectare (0.53 acre) of land from the Augustine McKinzie Farm property, a section 2002 resource determined eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Under section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, it has been determined that the construction of Alternate 3, which includes vegetative screening and narrowed shoulders to minimize impacts, will have no adverse effect on this section 2002 resource.

   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.
