An Archaeological Survey for the Richards, Texas Farm-to-Market Road 149 Fiber Optic Cable Project in Montgomery County, Texas
An archaeological survey for the proposed Richards, Texas Farm-to-Market Road 149 fiber optic cable project in northwest Montgomery County, Texas was performed by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) on December 2 and 3, 2011 for United Telephone of Texas of Overland Park, Kansas who is doing business as Centurylink. The Texas Historical Commission (THC) issued permit 6097 for this project, and BVRA is the holder of an Archeological Resource Protection Act (ARPA) permit from the National Forests and Grasslands in Texas for work on their land. The area investigated consists of 2.4 miles of proposed cable with an easement of 10 feet (2.9 acres). The project area is in Forest Service Compartment C-5. No archaeological sites were found, and no artifacts were collected. The area was investigated through a surface survey and shovel testing. Two streams cross the highway, and these are minor tributaries that are low probability areas for significant cultural resources. Copies of the report are on file at the THC, Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL), the Texas State Library, Centurylink, and BVRA.
