TxDOT identified 33 historic properties in the project area of potential effects (APE); consultation with stakeholders and the State Historic Preservation Officer led to concurrence that only five historic properties may be subject to adverse effects. Because final design will be contingent upon subsequent processes by a design-build contractor to be selected in 2021, the draft Programmatic Agreement (PA) for historic properties sets procedures and practices in place designed to mitigate for known adverse effects such as demolition; and buffers other historic properties in the APE from unanticipated additional impacts. TxDOT is making this draft PA available for public comment through November 30, 2019.
