Home Working with Section 106 ACHP Case Digest Fall 2003 District of Columbia: Redesign of Pennsylvania Avenue at the White House
Agencies: Federal Highway Administration, National Park Service, and National Capital Planning Commission
In September 2003, a Memorandum of Agreement for the subject plan was
signed. It ensures that the public will continue to have the opportunity
to participate refining design details for Americas Main Street
outside of the White House, and specifies that aspects of the project
related to closing the street could be reversed in the future if the street
were to be reopened to vehicular traffic.

That same month, the ACHP commended the Eastern Federal Lands Highway Division of the Federal Highway Administration for working closely with the many stakeholders in Section 106 consultation to ensure that preservation values are honored for some of our countrys most significant historic places.
