[42 Pa.B. 3356]
[Saturday, June 9, 2012]
Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 512(b)), the Acting Director of the Bureau of Project Delivery as delegated by the Secretary of Transportation makes the following written finding:
The Department of Transportation (Department) is planning the replacement of the superstructure of the existing bridge carrying SR 2019 (South Broad Street/Yorkana Road) over Kreutz Creek in Hallam Borough, York County. Included as part of the project is the reconstruction of abutment caps and pier cap, minor repair to the existing pier and abutments, approach roadway reconstruction, guide rail updates, removal of stream deposits within 50 feet of the structure and placement of rock scour protection. The project will be constructed under a detour.
The proposed project will require the use of land from the Clayton Eli Emig Memorial Park, which is a publicly owned park located on the northeast quadrant of the proposed bridge rehabilitation. The proposed project will require the use of 0.04 acre from the park for permanent right-of-way and will also require a temporary construction easement of 657.8 square feet for contractor access. This minor right-of-way acquisition and temporary construction easement will have no impact on the recreational activities, features or attributes of the larger (21.6 acres) park property.
In accordance with section 2002 of The Administrative Code of 1929 establishing the Department, a Categorical Exclusion Evaluation, Bridge and Roadway Programmatic Agreement (CEE, BRPA) has been developed for the subject project along with a ''Determination of Section 4(f) De Minimus Use Section 2002 No Adverse Use Public Parks, Recreation Areas, Wildlife and/or Waterfowl Refuges, State Forest Land, and State Game Land'' form to evaluate the potential environmental impacts caused by the subject project. The Section 4(f) document also serves as the Section 2002 Evaluation.
The approved documents are available in the CE/EA Expert System. 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. Based upon studies, there is no feasible and prudent alternative to the use of the Section 2002 resource for the proposed action. Measures will be taken to minimize harm as stipulated in the CEE, BRPA.
