The Transportation Research Board is hosting a panel of cultural resources experts to discuss recent trends in Section 106 Programmatic Agreements. The panel consists of the Federal Preservation Officer of Federal Highway Administration and four state Departments of Transportation and State Historic Preservation Offices. Attendees will learn best practices and lessons-learned in an interactive peer exchange format.

The event features other cultural resources experts sharing issues encountered by transportation agencies. Attendees will learn about historic roads, new and emerging technologies, rural landscapes and how to address resources from the recent past.

Personally, I’m looking forward to visiting points of interest in and around historic Minneapolis such as the Mill City Museum, once the world’s largest flour mill. The scenic boat tour of historic Stillwater to learn about the Stillwater Lift Bridge (a Mead & Hunt project) also looks great.

The ADC50 Mid-Year Meeting registration is open now. Hope you’ll join me in Minneapolis.
