Grants and Contracts Details


This proposal has been prepared in response to a request from staff of the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) for a proposal and cost estimate for conducting Phase I archaeological survey of a tract affected by replacement of a bridge and new alignment of a section of roadway along KY 1585 in Trigg County, Kentucky. The new alignment will traverse the valley of Sinking Fork Creek and will intersect adjacent uplands on both north and south sides of the creek. The work that will be conducted is intended to provide an inventory of the cultural resources within the project area and to provide an evaluation of the research potential for the archaeological deposits encountered within the new construction area. The total length of the new alignment is about 1525 feet (465 meters), and the width varies up to about 135 feet (42 meters). Preliminary inspection of the area by KYTC staff located a scatter of historic artifacts and a separate scatter of prehistoric artifacts. Additional sites are also likely present, given the landforms that will be affected.
