MnDOT has prepared treatment reports for wayside properties determined eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places (or listed on the National Register or located within a National Register site or district). These reports analyze conditions and include detailed information about a site's:
- spatial organization and land patterns
- structures, furnishings, and objects
- health and safety concerns
- environmental concerns
- accessibility considerations
In some cases, reports suggest ways to adapt the site to meet new uses or suggest ways to enhance the property through roadway design. In all cases, reports include recommendations that will retain National Register-eligibility. Reports also include cost estimates for three comparative treatments: stabilization (critical needs), preservation, and restoration.
