Grants and Contracts Details


This proposal has been prepared in response to a request from staff of the KYTC for a Phase I Archaeological Survey proposal for work on the proposed realignment of KY 911 and KY 115, in Christian County, Kentucky. This investigation is intended to provide specific information concerning the nature and distribution of potential archaeological resources within the project area. The work that is proposed will include a review of the existing archaeological sites and an evaluation of the extant documentary and cartographic sources pertaining to the proj ect area. This information will serve as the basis for the design and completion of a Phase I archaeological survey, using primarily subsurface investigative techniques. Description of Project Area The proposed project involves survey work on an approximately 600 m long x 60 m wide ROW that includes realignment of the KY 911 and KY 115 intersection in Hensley town, Christian County, Kentucky. According to your letter (October 28, 2003), between 40 and 50 percent of the proj ect area is previously disturbed'. In addition, KYTC archaeologists identified a well in the southwest quadrant of the project; therefore, there is a potential for historic archaeological sites in the project area. The elevation of the project area averages 550 ft. amsl.
