A Proposal to Perform Phase I Archaeological Survey for the US 641 Widening, Calloway County, Kentucky Item No. 1-314.00


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 US 641 Widening Project in Calloway 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 project area. This information will serve as the basis for the design and completion of a Phase I archaeological survey, using primarily subsurface investigative techniques.

The project begins at Sta. 107+00 south of the Murray City limits, and north of the Middle Fork of Clarks River and extends 1,600 meters along existing US 641, continuing through the Town of Murray and ending at Sta. 156+45.The ROW averages approximately 30 m on either side of US 641.Examination of design sheets indicates that much of the project is found within existing right-of-way and has been previously disturbed.
