Cultural and historic sites are often located within an area where maintenance activities are scheduled to be completed. This training, Cultural and Historic Preservation, is teaches participants about regulations and concerns related to safeguarding cultural and historic sites from the potential impacts of highway maintenance activities. Examples of maintenance activities that can impact cultural or historic sites include slope stabilization, shoulder or pavement widening, and vegetation control. Additional examples are presented during the course.

This course assists participants with recognizing potential historic or cultural resources, verifying a site's cultural or historic status, and avoiding impacts to sites when carrying out maintenance activities.
