Notes

General Note: "Brockington and Associates, Inc., conducted an intensive cultural resources survey of the proposed SC Route 165 Improvement Project in Dorchester County, South Carolina. We identified five historic resources (Resources 1152, 1153, 1161, 491 1095, and 83003831) within the architectural APE. We recommend Resources 1152, 1153, and 1161 not eligible for the NRHP. Resource 491 1095, the Summerville Water Plant, is eligible for the NRHP and is located within site 38DR10/90. Proposed improvements to SC Route 165 will have no adverse effect on this resource. Resource 83003831, Ashley River Road (SC Route 61) is listed on the NRHP. Proposed improvements to the intersection of SC Route 165 and SC Route 61 will have no adverse effect on this resource. 81 We identified no new archaeological sites within the archaeological APE. We revisited one archaeological site (38DR10/90) within the archaeological APE. We recommend archaeological site 38DR10/90 potentially eligible for the NRHP. Road alignment/ bridge location designs have been changed so that no improvements occur in the area of the site. Therefore, proposed improvements to SC Route 165 will have no adverse effect on site 38DR10/90. Additionally, road improvement designs for the intersection of SC Route 165 and SC Route 61 have been altered to avoid previously identified potentially eligible site 38DR235. Therefore, proposed improvements to the intersection of SC Route 165 and SC Route 61 will have no adverse effect on site 38DR235. Construction of the SC Route 165 Improvement Project as currently designed will not affect any historic properties or potential historic properties. Further management of the proposed SC Route 165 Improvement Project as currently designed with regard to cultural resources is not warranted."

General Note: "... As no evidence of potentially significant submerged cultural resources was found in the area of potential construction impact, no further investigation is recommended in conjunction with the proposed bridge replacement project. Based on the remote sensing survey, the proposed project will not impact any National Register of Historic Places eligible submerged cultural resources."
