Description: The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) participates in several Section 106 programmatic agreements and memoranda of understanding (MOAs) on historic resources. A longstanding streamlining agreement allows GDOT to directly conduct Section 106 coordination activities with the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) for concurrent reviews. In addition, there are four other initiatives: - A memorandum of understanding (MOU) for findings of "No Potential to Cause Effects" for many maintenance activities and minor highway projects. This MOU provides a comprehensive list of the types of projects that have been determined to have no potential to affect eligible historic resources. - A "No Historic Properties Affected Document, " which allows GDOT to make a determination of "No Effect" without SHPO concurrence. In the past, these documents were circulated to the SHPO for their concurrence. Under this agreement, these documents are provided to the SHPO for their information. - An agreement on the treatment of linear resources (primarily railroads and historic roadways). Disagreements have arisen over the treatment of abandoned and active historic railroads. This agreement helps to resolve issues by applying specific criteria of effect, streamlining the review for these types of projects and providing a better understanding of how Section 4(f) should be applied in such cases. This agreement is currently being refined. - A statewide bridge survey and study of all bridges built before 1956. Out of the nearly 2,000 bridges that meet the "over 50 years old" criteria, only 291 were determined to be eligible for the National Register. Of these 291 bridges, 146 have preservation potential. This study has helped to streamline Georgia's Section 106 process by targeting those bridges with high preservation value.
