Abstract : This report summarizes the results of a cultural resources survey which was conducted along approximately 90 mi of existing road rights-of-way and 1.5 mi of proposed new road rights-of-way in Presidio and Jeff Davis counties, Texas. The study was undertaken to provide archeological clearance for road improvements that are designed to assist the U.S. Border Patrol in accessing the International Boundary. A total of 27 new archeological sites and 42 isolated occurrences was identified as a result of the survey and one site (4lPS13) was rerecorded. Twenty-one of these sites are attributable to prehistoric activities and five sites are attributable to historic activities. One site contained both prehistoric and historic artifacts. Thirteen of the newly recorded sites are considered to be ineligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). The remaining 15 sites are recommended as potentially eligible for inclusion on the NRHP. A total of 20 previously recorded sites was revisited. Five sites documented during this project and six previously recorded sites are located on Texas State lands. With the exception of 41PS762 and 41PS763, these sites are also considered potentially eligible for the NRHP. Sites located within the right-of way which might be impacted during this undertakIng were flagged for avoidance. By limiting modification of the existing roadbed in the vicinity of these sites, adverse impacts as a result of road improvements were avoided.
