Abstract : An intensive cultural resources survey was conducted by the Environmental Resources Section of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Memphis District over a 3.44 acre borrow area. This item includes four borrow tracts from which fill will be removed. Three were surveyed in May of 1979 by staff members of the Center for Archaeological Research at Southwest Missouri State University. Two prehistoric and three historic sites were located. The project right-of-way was modified to avoid four of the five sites. To compensate for the loss of borrow acreage the additional 3.44 acres of borrow were acquired and surveyed. A literature search and pedestrian survey failed to locate any archaeological, historic, or architectural sites within the project right-of- way.
