State Historic Preservation Office/Threatened & Endangered Species
Prior to road construction, the RCOC Environmental Concerns division is behind the scenes doing extensive research into the natural history of the area. a construction project that receives federal funding must obtain clearance from the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO). Additionally, RCOC reviews information about the threatened and endangered species that may have habitat in the area and will determine if there is potential for any endangered species to be impacted by our road projects and maintenance work. The RCOC strives to preserve historic structures and protect species habitat.
