An Archaeological Survey for the Southwest Texas Telephone Company Farm-to-Market Road 470 Fiber Optic Project in Bandera County Texas
MetadataShow full item record
An archaeological survey of approximately six miles of new fiber optic line in southwest Bandera County, Texas was performed on September 9 and 10, 2009 by Brazos Valley Research Associates (BVRA) under Antiquities Permit 5392. The archival research indicated that there are no known previously recorded archaeological sites within the Area of Potential Effect (APE). Archaeologists from SWCA Environmental Consultants of Austin had surveyed a small portion of the western end of the project area in 2005 with negative results. The current field survey consisted of a 100% Pedestrian Survey that inspected the exposed surface that had been disturbed by highway improvements and trench profiles that were still open during the installation of a portion of the fiber optic line. No evidence of an archaeological site was found, and no artifacts were collected and curated. It is recommended that the client be allowed to continue with the installation of the fiber optic line. The project area is 0.73 acre in size. Copies of the final report are on file at the Texas Historical Commission (THC), the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory (TARL), the Southwest Texas Telephone Company, TRC Engineering, and BVRA.
