Description: A programmatic agreement between FHWA and MoDOT, for both MoDOT and off-systems federally funded projects that would use property from publicly owned parks, wildlife and waterfowl refuges, and historic sites. Section 4(f) of the U.S. Department of Transportation Act of 1966 is not applicable for projects that involve the construction or maintenance of bicycle and pedestrian lanes, paths or facilities within a publicly-owned or leased park if there is no change of ownership and the use of the property remains recreational. Section 4(f) is also not applicable for projects that may require a change in ownership of small amounts of publicly-owned lands, such as schools or conservation land, because in such cases the publicly owned property is not a park or a refuge, and the small amount of land needed for the project is not used or planned to be used primarily for recreational purposes.

This unique agreement is allows for an unparalleled improvement in efficiency for MoDOT. The agreement enables well over 90% of Section 4(f) issues to be resolved at the state DOT level. Section 4(f) concerns that formerly took a month to resolve for each project can now be concluded the same day, demonstrating a significant savings in time and money.

This programmatic Section 4(f) inapplicability determination allows MoDOT to classify applicable MoDOT and local projects as having met the requirements of Section 4(f) without submitting each project to FHWA for an inapplicability determination.
