DC State Historic Preservation Office Consultation for the Lincoln Memorial Rehabilitation, National Mall and Memorial Parks, Washington, DC

The National Park Service (NPS), National Mall and Memorial Parks (NAMA) wishes to initiate consultation with the District of Columbia (DC SHPO) under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act regarding the rehabilitation of the Lincoln Memorial, in accordance with 36 CFR 800.3 of the regulations of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation.

The purpose of this project is to rehabilitate the Lincoln Memorial for its centennial in 2022. This project will include the rehabilitation of the undercroft portion of the Lincoln Memorial and improvements to the existing visitor services on the mezzanine level, which will include accessibility enhancements and expanded visitor interpretation and NPS service-related spaces. Exterior work will also be completed and include repairs to the brick masonry and marble joints and improvements to the landscaping adjacent to the memorial.
In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the NPS will prepare an Environmental Assessment (EA) to identify alternatives and analyze impacts potentially resulting from the rehabilitation of the Lincoln Memorial. Concurrent to the NEPA process, the NPS will conduct consultation under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA). The NPS plans to consult with the public per 36 CFR 800.3(e) by holding public informational meetings and through its Planning, Environment, and Public Comment website ( The NPS anticipates that these outreach efforts will accommodate the requirements of both NEPA and the Section 106 process.

The draft Area of Potential Effect (APE) is bounded by Lincoln Memorial Circle, NW, Daniel French Drive, Independence Avenue, and 23rd Street. The draft APE encompasses the Lincoln Memorial and is situated within the National Mall (1981, revised 2016) and East and West Potomac Parks (1973, revised 2001) National Register Historic Districts. We are also aware that this project may affect other National Register eligible or listed properties.
