Section 106

Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (1966) requires Federal agencies to consider the effects of their undertakings on historic and archaeological resources. Since the Henry Street Bridge project required a federal permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, it was the subject of a Section 106 study. The Section 106 study followed the process mandated by law and concluded with the execution of a Memorandum of Agreement on November 3, 2022.

There are two historic properties within the White River Innovation District: the National Register-listed Indianapolis Parks & Boulevard System and the National Register-eligible Diamond Chain Company Complex. The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers determined the project would have a direct adverse effect on both properties.

The Memorandum of Agreement between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville District; the Indiana State Historic Preservation Officer and Indianapolis Department of Public Works was signed in October 2022, outlining how the adverse effects would be mitigated.
