In 2011, MaineDOT engaged Kleinfelder to provide strategic direction and undertake Section 106 and Section 4(f) compliance for its Sarah Mildred Long Bridge project. The National Register-eligible bridge, built in 1940, spans between Kittery, Maine, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The area is home to National Historic Landmarks, National Register-listed sites, and several National Register-eligible sites and historic districts.
MaineDOT now has significant documentation related to Section 106 and Section 4(f) compliance. Kleinfelder provided the department with well-researched and thoughtful determinations of eligibility and effect, as well as full Section 4(f) documentation. Our work has contributed to the maintenance of the project’s schedule, which is imperative for MaineDOT to meet longterm goals and deadlines.
