PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 07-1767




Westmoreland County

[37 Pa.B. 5228]
[Saturday, September 22, 2007]

   Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 572(b)), the Acting Director of the Bureau of Design makes the following written finding:

   The Federal Highway Administration and the Department of Transportation (Department) are planning to replace the St. Vincent High Bridge, which carries Township Road, T-898, over the Norfolk Southern Railroad in Unity Township, Westmoreland County.

   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. The Categorical Exclusion Evaluation/Section 2002 Evaluation is located on the Department's CE/EA Expert System.

   The St. Vincent High Bridge and the Norfolk Southern Railroad (formerly the Pennsylvania Railroad) are eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Therefore, they qualify as section 2002/section 4(f) resources. The St. Vincent High Bridge is also a contributing element to the Norfolk Southern (Pennsylvania) Railroad Mainline. Impacts to the St. Vincent High Bridge and the Norfolk Southern Railroad will constitute a use of the section 2002/section 4(f) resources. Based upon studies, there is no prudent and feasible alternative to the proposed action.

   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 project as designed, and all reasonable steps have been take to minimize such effects.
