Abstract : Background research was conducted for a temporary area for the construction of components of the Mississippi River - Gulf Outlet (MROO) new lock in Orleans Parish. This research included a review of historic maps, documents, and aerial photographs. The geomorphic and geologic history of the project area was reviewed, particularly as it pertains to the geoarcheological predictions for the project area. No fieldwork was undertaken. From the available data, it was concluded that construction in the project area is unlikely to impact any archeological deposits. No further work was recommended for the project area. However, should unanticipated archeological remains be encountered during construction, examination by an archeologist is recommended.
