If the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet determines it is in the public interest for
a gate to be erected or maintained or a flagman stationed at any highway crossing
within one mile of the corporate limits of any city, the cabinet shall give the superintendent
or manager of the railroad written notice that a gate or flagman is required. If a gate is required, the notice shall prescribe the time within which the gate
shall be erected, the character of gate required, and shall designate the hours during
which a man shall be kept in charge of the gate. If a flagman is required, the notice shall designate the hours during which he shall
be kept at the crossing. The railroad company shall comply with the provisions of the notice. The cabinet may authorize the discontinuance of the gate or flagman whenever, in
its judgment, the public interest no longer requires it.
