In 2018, the Wyse Fork Battlefield was listed in the National Register of Historic Places, which established the battlefield boundaries following National Park Service guidance. In 2022, the bypass project was determined to pose an adverse impact to the battlefield. Specific impacts include the new eastside connector interchange between existing U.S. Highway 70 and the new bypass; an interchange at Caswell Station and Wyse Fork roads; and service roads.
In 1998, the Henry Loftin Herring Farm was determined eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2022, the bypass project was determined to have an adverse impact on the farm. Specific impacts are from the new west side connector interchange between existing 70 and the new bypass.
As required by the National Historic Preservation Act, USACE is working closely with NCDOT and SHPO, as well as using the findings of the archaeological surveys and input from Section 106 consulting parties, to minimize and mitigate the adverse effect to various features. These efforts, which will be documented in the Section 106 Memorandum of Agreement, will be appended to the Final Environmental Impact Statement.
