PA Bulletin, Doc. No. 07-2424



Venango County

[37 Pa.B. 6981]
[Saturday, December 29, 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 (FHWA) and the Department of Transportation (Department) are planning an enhancement project within the Oil City Historic District, Venango County. The enhancements will include decorative street lighting, traffic signalization upgrades, decorative sidewalks, handicap accessibility provisions, storm drainage improvements, benches, trash receptacles, street trees, landscape plantings and traffic calming measures.

   The FHWA has determined that this enhancement project will have a ''Net Benefit'' to the historic district. Therefore, a ''Nationwide/Programmatic section 4(f) Evaluation for Transportation Projects that have Net Beneficial Use (Net Benefit)'' checklist has been prepared and approved. It also serves as the section 2002 Evaluation to evaluate the potential impacts to section 4(f)/section 2002 resources caused by the subject enhancement project.

   Based upon studies, there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the proposed action. Mitigation measures will be taken to minimize harm as stipulated in the Categorical Exclusion Evaluation (CEE), and the Nationwide/Programmatic section 4(f)/section 2002 Evaluation (Net Benefit) checklist.

   The environmental, economic, social and other effects of the proposed project as enumerated in section 2002 of The Administrative Code 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 taken to minimize such effects.
