Grants and Contracts Details


This proposal has been prepared in response to a Request for Proposals (RFP#12-2010) solicited by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) Division of Central Purchasing, to conduct archaeological monitoring in areas affected by the proposed Vine Street Streetscape Improvement Project. This project will affect a segment of Vine Street in downtown Lexington, Kentucky, that is slightly more than three city blocks in length (from the intersection of Vine and Broadway to slightly east of the intersection of Vine and Limestone). The streetscape improvement involves removal and replacement of sidewalks, utility lines, storm sewer segments, curbs and gutters, and planters. Some of these improvements will extend into previously undisturbed deposits that are below the current grade of the utilities and biological facilities, and archaeological monitoring will be required when this occurs. This investigation is intended to provide information concerning the presence of historic or prehistoric archaeological resources in the proposed construction zones. The principal concern is for intact historic deposits, which may date to any time between the initial settlement of Lexington in the 1770s and the 1960s, and which may include remnants of historic streets, sidewalks, paving materials, cisterns, privies, structure foundations, or intact midden accumulations.
