Amendment 3 – OKI 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan and FY24 – 27 TIP Amendment 3

The amendment is scheduled for adoption by the OKI Board of Directors on September 14, 2023. All comments must be submitted to Regina Fields (rfields@oki.org) by 3:00pm ET on September 13, 2023

This report constitutes an amendment to the OKI 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan  prepared by the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) for the Cincinnati metropolitan area. The OKI 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (the Plan) was updated and adopted by the OKI Board of Directors on June 11, 2020.

This amendment is undertaken primarily to incorporate two projects included in the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s 2022 Enacted Highway Plan. KYTC will be using federal funds for the design phase of these projects if approved. Both projects are considered non-exempt since they are capacity adding and trigger the requirement for a new regional emissions analysis, and a new finding of conformity.

Fiscal Constraint is also revised to account for these projects and update costs for the Brent Spence Bridge Corridor Project and KY-536 project 6-162.3.

In summary the following changes are included in this action:

Plan Amendment 3
Conformity Technical Document

  • Add (Plan ID 11906) Camp Ernst Road from Long Branch Road to KY-237. Widen from 2 to 4 lanes
  • Add (Plan ID 11281) I-71 from I-75 to Boone/Gallatin Co. line. Widen from 4 to 6 lanes.
  • Revise costs to account for the Brent Spence Bridge Corridor Project and 6-162.30.

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s 2022 Enacted Highway Plan allocates federal funding for the design phase for these projects.

Plan ID 11906 Camp Ernst Rd. is added to the Plan as federally funded with a revised air quality analysis year of 2030. This triggers the need for an updated emissions (conformity) analysis and fiscal constraint analysis. A separate TIP Amendment is necessary following this Plan amendment.

Plan ID 11281 I-71 widening is added to the Plan as federally funded with a revised air quality analysis year of 2030. This triggers the need for an updated emissions (conformity) analysis and fiscal constraint analysis. A separate TIP Amendment is necessary following this Plan amendment.

 

Amendment 2 – OKI 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan and FY21 – 24 TIP Amendment 10

This report constitutes an amendment to the metropolitan transportation plan and Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) prepared by the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) for the Cincinnati metropolitan area.

These amendments are undertaken primarily to incorporate and account for projects that received Ohio Transportation Review Advisory Committee (TRAC) funds in September 2021. These funds allow the continuation of the project development process of existing Plan projects and the addition of an additional project not currently in the Plan. These changes trigger the requirement for a new regional emissions analysis, and a new finding of conformity.

In summary the following changes are included in this action:

2050 Plan Amendment 2

  • Add North Hamilton Crossing Phase 3.
  • Adjust construction costs for projects impacted by changes in year of construction and demonstrate fiscal
  • constraint.
  • Adjust air quality analysis year for projects impacted by changes in year of construction and demonstrate air

Amendment 1

This report constitutes an amendment to the metropolitan transportation plan prepared by the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) for the Cincinnati metropolitan area. The OKI 2050 Metropolitan Transportation Plan (the Plan) was updated and adopted by the OKI Board of Directors on June 11, 2020. The FY2021-24 TIP was adopted April 9, 2020.

Periodically, as needs and conditions change, it becomes necessary to modify the Plan. This amendment is undertaken to incorporate several changes necessitated by the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s recently signed into law Six Year Highway Plan. The Six Year Plan identifies funding for projects that require entry in to the OKI TIP and Plan and has triggered the need for this amendment, a new regional emissions analysis, and a new finding of conformity.

This Amendment is undertaken to address the following items:

  1. 2050 Plan: ADD Project 6-80150 KY 717 from Turfway Rd. (KY 1017) to Donaldson Rd. (KY 236). Widen from 2 to 4 lanes
