Author(s): Valerie Davis; Kristie Person

Year: 2012


"The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) proposes widening Hitchcock Parkway (SC 118) between near Silver Bluff Road (SC 302) and Richland Avenue (Jefferson Davis Highway/US 1), which will include adding an additional travel lane in each direction, and improvements at various intersecting routes with Hitchcock Parkway. The project area under survey extends approximately seven miles along Hitchcock Parkway and intersecting roads. Figure 1 shows the project area and the location of cultural resources within the project area as well as other pertinent cultural features. Figure 2 provides a close-up of the northern portion of the project area where most resources were identified."

General Note: "The Phase I Archaeological Survey identified one new archaeological site (38AKI069) and one isolated find in the project area. Site 38AKI069 is considered not eligible for listing on the NRHP as the site is likely redeposited material from road and housing construction and thus has a lack of archaeological potential. There are three architectural resources within the project area that were individually recorded as part of this study. The resources were a Southern Railway Bridge over Augusta Road, a one-part vernacular commercial building, and an abandoned residence. None of these resources are recommended eligible for listing in the NRHP. Additionally, there are four post-World War II subdivisions located in part within the APE of the proposed property. Per SHPO guidance, portions of these subdivisions were photographed and noted in the current study. None of these subdivisions are recommended eligible for NRHP listing."
