[30 Pa.B. 2687]
Pursuant to the provisions of 71 P. S. Section 2002(b), the Secretary of Transportation makes the following written finding:
The Department of Transportation plans to construct alignment and intersection improvements to US Route 30 from the PA Route 462 interchange through the PA Route 116 intersection in West Manchester Township, York County. The proposed project known as S. R. 0030, Section A01, is located on US Route 30 approximately 3.0 miles west of the City of York and 1.5 miles east of Thomasville. The proposed improvements include widening Route 30 from three to five lanes between PA Route 116 and PA Route 616. The Route 30 eastbound ramp at the PA Route 462 interchange will be widened to two lanes. The PA Route 116 intersection with Route 30 will be relocated approximately 600 feet west of its current location. PA Route 116 will be widened at its intersection with Route 30 to provide turn lanes.
The S. R. 0030, Section A01 project is located within the West Market Street Historic District and adjacent to Lee's Diner and the Wolf Farmstead, which were determined eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The effect of this project on these National Register Eligible resources will be mitigated by mitigation measures outlined in the Categorical Exclusion Evaluation/Section 2002 Evaluation.
I have considered the environmental, economic, social, and other effects of the proposed project as enumerated in Section 2002 of the Administrative Code, and have concluded that there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the project as designed, and all reasonable steps have been taken to minimize such effect.
No adverse environmental effect is likely to result from this widening and intersection improvement project.
