The video tells the story of a cultural resources discovery identified during the planning stages of the U.S. 20 expansion project in Woodbury County. The documentary shows how government agencies, Native American tribes, historians, and archaeologists can work together to balance transportation needs while protecting cultural resources and the integrity of the land.
Historical finds from the area and unique perspectives on the significance of this location are highlighted in the video. The consultation process under the National Historic Preservation Act is discussed, and viewpoints about the project, land, and human history of the area are shared highlight some of our efforts in Woodbury County for the US 20 project.
