Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on the Environment. Task 87. Coordination of Section 106 and Long Range Transportation Planning

Many state departments of transportation (DOTs) and metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs) include historic preservation goals and objectives in their long range transportation plans. These goals and objectives generally focus on the importance of avoiding and minimizing impacts to historic properties, and in some cases, enhancing these resources. These goals and objectives are usually addressed in the context of Section 106 compliance, during project development. There are several DOTs and MPOs, however, who begin to address these goals and objectives during long range planning, long before the start of Section 106. These DOTs and MPOs have developed programs or implement approaches that identify historic properties within proposed project areas identified in long range plans, assess impacts on these properties from the proposed projects, and consult with their State Historic Preservation Officers (SHPOs) and other stakeholders about historic preservation issues associated with these projects. The results of these identification, evaluation, and consultation efforts are then used for decision-making in programming and project development. This research highlights effective practices that may help historic preservation and transportation planners better coordinate their efforts.
