SECTION 106 CONSULTING PARTIES
The National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) requires the Federal Highway Administration and state departments of transportation to take into account the effects of the project on properties listed in, or eligible for listing in, the National Register of Historic Places. Section 106 outlines the process involved in identifying and assessing the project’s effects on historic properties.

Consulting parties play a key role, including:
- Identifying historic properties that may be affected
- Providing input regarding effects the project may have
- Assisting in the development of appropriate mitigation measures to resolve any adverse effects
Section 106 consulting parties may include historical societies, preservation societies, local governments, landowners and other residents with an interest in the project or concerned about the project’s effect on historic properties.
The Project Team anticipates hosting four consulting parties meetings. If you want to become a consulting party, contact Gray & Pape, Cultural Resources lead. Please include your contact information and concerns regarding the project’s effect on historic properties.
