[45 Pa.B. 7345]
[Saturday, December 26, 2015]

 Under section 2002(b) of The Administrative Code of 1929 (71 P. S. § 512(b)) establishing the Department of Transportation (Department), the Deputy Secretary for Highway Administration, as delegated by the Secretary of Transportation, makes the following written finding:

 The Department is planning to replace the Hunters Station Bridge (State Route 62), which crosses the Allegheny River in Tionesta Township, Forest County. Information describing the project, with the associated environmental analysis, is contained in the Environmental Assessment and the supporting technical reports as listed in the Finding of No Significant Impact that was received for this project.

 This project will require the demolition of the National Register of Historic Places eligible structure, which qualifies as a Section 4(f)/Section 2002 resource. Potential temporary impacts to the Middle Allegheny River Water Trail will occur during construction activities including short-term closures during overhead girder erection for the new bridge and demolition of the existing bridge.

 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 taken to minimize the effects.
