FHWA Statewide Programmatic Agreements
This PA, amended in 2012, is a good example for states that wish to develop a PA to detail a delegation of responsibility to the DOT. It is clearly written, concise, and accurately details the various responsibilities of FHWA and the WSDOT, including consultation with Indian tribes.
This agreement is very well written and closely follows the requirements of the ACHP’s regulations at 36 CFR 800.3-800.6, except for (1) the elimination of case-by-case SHPO review for undertakings having no effect to historic properties and (2) delegation of authority (except for tribal consultation) to the UDOT. It was amended in June 2013.
This PA is an excellent example of how to streamline consultation on routine bridge projects, while ensuring that the DOT identifies and seeks to preserve the best examples of historic bridges in the State.
