Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act requires Federal agencies to take into account the effects of their undertakings on properties listed in, or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. This is accomplished through consultation with resource agencies, stakeholders, tribes, Native Hawaiian organizations, and the public. The regulation implementing Section 106 strongly encourages close coordination between the Section 106 process and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements. The regulation also gives agencies great flexibility in how they fulfill their Section 106 responsibilities.

This training is designed to help transportation professionals meet the requirements of Section 106 and take advantage of the flexibility offered by the Section 106 regulation. The training focuses on the fundamentals of Section 106, placing it in context with other environmental requirements, including NEPA and Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act. The course presents a number of innovative and programmatic approaches to Section 106 compliance that streamline and enhance environmental reviews and project delivery. The training emphasizes practical, real-world approaches for completing the Section 106 process, with the goal of balancing historic preservation concerns with the needs of transportation projects.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify key historic preservation laws and other authorities
  • Describe the Section 106 process
  • Define the roles and responsibilities of all parties in the Section 106 process
  • Describe the NEPA transportation decisionmaking process
  • Describe the relationship among Section 106, NEPA project development, and Section 4(f)
  • Identify principles and opportunities for environmental streamlining and stewardship
