For projects receiving federal funding or a federal permit, the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (as amended) requires Federal agencies to take into account the effects of their undertakings on historic properties and evaluate possible alternatives or project modifications that would avoid, minimize, or mitigate the impact of the project. Historic properties are properties that are included in the National Register of Historic Places or that meet the criteria for the National Register. Public involvement is a key ingredient in this process, and the views of the public are solicited and considered throughout the process. The Story Map below is a result of this process and is a means to document and share the history of local impacted resources. For more information on this process link to the FHWA Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act or the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation.
