Home Historic Preservation Programs & Officers Federal FHWA FHWA Statewide Programmatic Agreements
The use of statewide Section 106 Programmatic Agreements (PAs) can save a state transportation agency (STA) significant time and money in completing the review of routine and non-controversial FHWA projects. As part of FHWA’s Every Day Counts initiative, many FHWA state offices (Divisions) and state transportation agencies are actively working with their State Historic Preservation Officers (SHPOs) and the ACHP to develop PAs or update existing ones.
We have updated our checklist for developing a FHWA statewide PA and have posted several example PAs to educate others on how FHWA Divisions have expedited Section 106 review without compromising the protection of important historic properties. The checklist is a good starting point, as it includes useful advice on the drafting of a statewide PA, the necessary components, and what the ACHP looks for in our review. A list of the FHWA Statewide PAs currently in effect is also provided through the link below.
