The State of Hawaii, Department of Transportation, Highways Division (HDOT) will be holding a public information meeting on the Programmatic Agreement (PA) process for the implementation of Minor Hawaiʻi Historic Bridge Projects.

This proposed project brings the Federal Highway Administration, HDOT, and other interested stakeholders together to develop a procedural concept and invite public participation and input.

The State of Hawaiʻi has approximately 400 highway bridges that are potentially eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The Minor Hawaiʻi Historic Bridge Projects PA is intended to streamline implementation, review, and reporting for individual bridge projects that will have no effect or minor effects on these historic properties.

The PA will not address major bridge rehabilitation or replacement projects. This project will be federally funded and considered a federal undertaking.

The virtual community meeting is scheduled for Jan. 28, 2021 from 6-8:30 p.m.
