Introduction 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 CR 1116 Bridge and Approaches Replacement Project, North Fork of the Licking River in Bracken 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. Description of Proiect Area The proposed project involves survey work on an approximately 0.26 mile right-of-way (ROW) that includes a bridge replacement and new approaches. CR 1116 crosses the North Fork of the Licking River north of the Village of Hittville, Kentucky. The new ROW begins at Sta. 20+50 running north and terminating at Sta. 34+00 for a total project length of 1,350 ft. According to KYTC Archaeological Staff, lithic debitage was observed, but not collected, on the surface of a plowed field near the project's southern tie-in. The elevation of the project averages between 641 and 700 ft. arnsl.
