Since 2009, Kleinfelder has had an on-call contract for architectural historian and cultural resources management services with MaineDOT. We provide services that fulfill the department’s compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act and Section 4(f) of the U.S. Department of Transportation Act.
Kleinfelder undertakes this work as project owners, therefore the client entrusts us with determining the level of effort needed for each project. We advocate for our client’s projects knowing that resources are limited. Often, the client and federal agency look to Kleinfelder to provide strategic direction throughout Section 106 and Section 4(f) compliance.
Kleinfelder provides efficient and effective services to MaineDOT. We objectively analyze each project to determine an appropriate area of potential effect, thus ensuring the accuracy of each project’s scope. We often provide guidance on the Section 106 and Section 4(f) compliance process by accurately interpreting federal regulations to provide strategic direction.
Kleinfelder has completed more than 200 highway, multi-modal, and municipally managed cultural resources projects for MaineDOT. We have built and continue to maintain close client relationship with MaineDOT, which continually seeks our expertise on large and complicated transportation projects.
