Metric Environmental collected initial data and completed the Red Flag Summary of the proposed KY-536 corridor from KY-17 to the Campbell County Line. The study will help determine which alternatives are the most effective and those that will be brought forward for further evaluation and eventual recommendation at the end of the environmental study.
An one-mile radius surrounding the existing KY-536 was assessed for the following potential environmental issues:
- Air Quality
- Aquatic and Terrestrial Resources
- Cultural and Historic Resources
- Environmental Justice
- Federal Lands
- Groundwater Resources
- Hazardous Materials
- Existing and Future Land UsesNoise
- Relocation Potential
- Section 4(f)/Parks Resources
- Section 6(f) Resources
- Socioeconomic Concerns
- Streams/Surface Waters
- Threatened & Endangered Species
- Water Quality
- Agency Coordination
Finally, an ArcGIS exhibit was created which illustrated the various environmental concerns described within the screening analysis document.
A series of comprehensive written technical memoranda were provided for inclusion in the final Scoping Study submitted to OKI for their use during the decision making process in 2015 through 2018.
