Abstract : Table Contents: Land Use; Cultural Resources; Visual Resources; Biological Resources; Water Resources; Geology and Soils; Traffic and Circulation; Air Quality; Noise; Utilities; Hazardous Materials and Waste; Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act of 1966, codified in federal law at 49 U.S.C. 303, declares that 'It is the policy of the United States Government that special effort should be made to preserve the natural beauty of the countryside and public park and recreation lands, wildlife and waterfowl refuges, and historic sites.' Section 4(f) specifies that 'THE Secretary of Transportation may approve a transportation program or project... requiring the use of publicly owned land of a public park, recreation area, or wildlife and waterfowl refuge of national, State, or local significance, or land of an historic site of national, State, or local significance (as determined by the Federal, State, or local officials having jurisdiction over the park, area refuge, or site) only if (1) there is no prudent and feasible alternative to using that land; and (2) the program or project includes all possible planning to minimize harm to the park, recreation area, wildlife and waterfowl refuge, or historic site resulting from the use.' In general, a section 4(f) 'use' occurs with a Department of Transportation approved project or program when (1) section 4(f) land is permanently incorporated into a transportation facility; (2) when there is a temporary occupancy of section 4(f) land that is adverse in terms of the section 4(f) preservationist purposes as determined by specified criteria (23 CFR 771.135 P 7)
