Windshields and Warfighters: Sharing Lessons Learned from the Roads and Military Installations of Texas

Author(s): Kristen E. Mt. Joy; Chantal McKenzie

Year: 2018

Summary

In Texas, federal agencies encounter complex issues and procedural challenges related to protecting and maintaining the resources that reflect our state’s rich legacy.  Cultural resources on military installations present a unique challenge to those responsible for their management.  Likewise, federal highway funded projects require special consideration of historic properties during transportation project planning.  Balancing regulatory compliance with agency objectives, either supporting the military mission or providing safe and reliable roads, requires an integrated and collaborative approach.   Sharing management strategies, the Texas Military Department and Texas Department of Transportation can take lessons learned from experiences to improve management of the Lone Star State’s heritage.
