The project area consists of a narrow survey corridor within the median of Route 301 and the adjacent shoulders within the VDOT easement some three miles south of Port Royal. The survey corridor is within Fort A.P. Hill and is approximately 76 m (250 ft) in width and measures some 305 m (1,000 ft) in length. The project area covers approximately 3.2 ha (7.9 acres).
