Cultural Resources Cultural resources are the physical evidence or place of past human activity. They can include everything from archaeological sites to buildings, bridges, and canals to landscapes and places of traditional religious and cultural importance.
ITD seeks to avoid, minimize, or mitigate adverse impacts to historically significant cultural resources. Section ITD projects with federal funding, permitting, or land are required by Section of the National Historic Preservation Act ofand implementing regulations 36 CFR to take into account the effects of project actions on historic properties.
During this process ITD Cultural Resources staff define the Area of Potential Effect, make a good and reasonable faith effort to identify historic properties within that area, and assess any potential effects of the project on those properties.
Please see the Section 4 f chapter of the Environmental Procedures Manual for more information on this process.
Archaeology Archaeology is the study of past human activity through the recovery and analysis of material culture. The archaeological record consists of artifacts, ecofacts, features, and cultural landscapes which have been used by people of the pasts.
Archaeologists precisely record where all the clues of the past are found so they may reconstruct living surfaces, which may include house remains, fire-hearths, and refuse or garbage pits.
Once the artifacts and their contexts are fully studied, researchers attempt to explain how past peoples and societies made a living and adjusted to changing social and environmental circumstances. Here are some examples of archaeological resources that ITD projects might encounter: Archaeologists determine if the property is associated with an important historic event or if it can yield more information about the past.
Archaeologists complete a detailed recording of the site, document the site using photography and sketch maps, and conduct in-depth analysis of any artifacts, ecofacts, and features that are present to better understand how these were used by people of the past.
ITD uses archaeologists to document sites that might be impacted by projects, determine if they have significance, and assess what impacts project actions might have on those properties.
Architectural history is the study of the built environment and how surroundings can impact our lives. Certain properties remind us of our history and shared past. Here are some examples of architectural resources that ITD projects might encounter: Usually these properties are at least fifty years old.
Architectural historians determine if the property is associated with an important historic event or person; has a distinctive design, style, or construction; or if it can yield more information on the past.
They also ask if the location, design, setting, materials, workmanship, association, and feeling of the property helps that property convey its significance to the general public.
Architectural historians complete detailed written descriptions of the property, document the property using photography and sketch maps, and conduct in-depth archival research to better understand the local, state, or national significance of the property.
ITD employs architectural historians to document properties that might be impacted by projects, determine if they have significance, and assess what impacts project actions might have on those properties. Our transportation system represents the shared history that helps to unite us. ITD has worked with Consultants and local communities to prepare informative publications and resources about transportation history in the Gem State.
