Archaeological Investigation of the Proposed S-87 Bridge Replacement, Lexington and Aiken Counties.
Author(s): Michael Trinkley
"An archaeological investigation of the above referenced project was conducted by the Department's Staff Archaeologist on October 21, 1982. The proposal involves a relocation of S-87, the construction of an 88-foot wide box culvert in the wetlands of Chinquapin Creek, and the channelization of the creek. The proposed S-87 road relocation is situated about 50 feet north of the existing road (upstream) for a distance of 400 feet. The new channel for Chinquapin Creek would be excavated about 50 feet southwest of the existing channel and would be 160 feet in length. In addition the "Y-intersection" of S-87 and a dirt county road would be converted to a "T-intersection" with the new corridor about 200 feet in length."
