National Historic Preservation Act, Section 106 Process

Start: November 2020     End: Summer 2021
 
Overview


The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), in cooperation with MDOT, is beginning the process of updating the Section 106 Programmatic Agreement (PA) for Federal Aid-Eligible Roadways in Michigan. The current PA, authorized in 2011, expires on July 25, 2021.

The purpose of a statewide PA is to streamline implementation, review, and reporting for federal aid-eligible road projects consistent with the requirements of Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (54 U.S.C. 300101 et seq.; NHPA), and the implementing regulations in 36 C.F.R. Part 800.

Beginning in January 2021, FHWA and MDOT will convene a working group of stakeholders to advise on a new, revised PA for the Michigan federal aid bridge and highway program.
