Phone: 617-494-2702
Description: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT)-Highway Division (formerly the Massachusetts Highway Department), developed, and signed a Programmatic Agreement (PA) in 2004 that established the process by which both agencies meet their responsibilities under Sections 106, 110(d), and 110(f) of the National Historic Preservation Act, for minor highway projects in the Federal Aid Highway Program. The PA authorizes MassDOT – Highway Division to consult with the Massachusetts State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) and other consulting parties on behalf of the FHWA, though the FHWA remains responsible for all findings and determinations. The PA also requires the FHWA to comply with Federal requirements pertaining to direct government-to-government consultation with Tribes, but allows MassDOT – Highway Division to directly solicit comments from Tribes.

The PA only applies to minor highway projects, which are classified as categorical exclusions under 23CFR 771.115 and 23 CFR 771.117. Projects that require an Environmental Assessment or an Environmental Impact Statement for compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act must follow the procedures in 36CFR 800. MassDOT – Highway Division may also choose at any time to process a minor project by following the procedures in 36CFR 800 rather than following the procedures in this PA. The Massachusetts SHPO or FHWA may also request that MassDOT – Highway Division process a minor project by following the procedures in 36CFR 800, if a known controversy exists.
