Public Notice of Intent to Apply Section 4(f) De Minimis Rule
KYTC Item No. 11-10018
Harlan County
Kentucky Ave Over Martins Fork Cumberland River (Bridge 048C00067N)
Please provide comments by June 28, 2024.

In compliance with Section 4(f) of the U.S. Department of Transportation Act of 1966 (49 USC 303), hereafter referred to as “Section 4(f)," and its implementing regulations codified at 23 CFR Part 774, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in cooperation with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) provides notice to the public of its intent to make a de minimis impact or “no adverse effect" determination under Section 4(f) regarding the impacts of the proposed bridge replacement, referenced above. KYTC proposes to replace the existing bridge Kentucky Avenue over Martins Fork Cumberland River with a new bridge located about 475 feet south, this will entail removal of the existing bridge and six tennis courts.

This tennis courts are located on the Harlan City Independent School District property and open for public use and are, therefore, a Section 4(f) protected property. Because there are other tennis courts that are open for public use at the Harlan County Public Schools by application, there would be no overall adverse effect by removing the six courts in the pathway of the new bridge.

Pursuant to 23 CFR 774.5(b)(2), notice is hereby provided of the proposed de minimis determination. Comments regarding the proposed projects impacts to Section 4(f) protected public park and intended de minimis impact finding may be submitted to KYTC during the 15-day comment period to:
