Author(s): Bradford W. Stone

Year: 1997

Summary

On August 11th and 27th, and September 5th and 11th, 1997, Archaeological Research Services, Inc. (ARS) conducted a supplemental Class III archaeological survey of several segments of the proposed Agua Fria Freeway alignment (Outer Loop 101) between Indian School Road and Northern Avenue, Tolleson, Phoenix, and Glendale, Maricopa County, Arizona. The survey alignment consists of a 700 ft (213.36 m) wide corridor located east of 99th Avenue between a point 1320 ft (402.33 m) north of Camelback Road, and extending to Northern Avenue. The centerline of the corridor varies from 250 to 1100 ft (76.2 to 335.28 m) east of the 99th Avenue centerline, and crosses portions of Sections 4, 9, and 16, T2N, R1E (USGS Tolleson). In addition, an 80 ac (32.4 ha) parcel located at the southeast corner of Indian School Road and 99th Avenue (the N 1/2, NW 1/4 of Section 8, T2N, R1E) was surveyed. A total of approximately 256.62 ac (103.93 ha) of private, municipal, Maricopa County, and ADOT-owned lands were examined during this study. In addition, three historic structures, located at 9702 West Glendale Avenue, 9825 West Glendale Avenue, and 4101 North 99th Avenue, were examined.

The survey was requested by the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) to determine if important cultural resources (which may include prehistoric or historic archaeological sites or objects, historically or architecturally significant structures, buildings, or landscapes, and/or Traditional Cultural Properties) were present within or immediately adjacent to the study area which could be affected by the proposed construction of the Agua Fria Freeway alignment. Portions of the proposed alignment between Interstate-10 and Camelback Road had been surveyed by ARS in 1988 and 1989 (Bontrager 1988; Curtis 1989). The present survey examines those portions of the proposed Agua Fria Freeway alignment that were not investigated during previous studies due in part to private property access considerations (including the above-noted historic properties). This study was performed under the provisions of Contract 97-17 between ADOT and ARS, and conducted in part under the conditions and authority of Permit 97-17BL, issued to ARS by the Arizona State Museum. The ASM was notified of ARS’s intent to perform the survey by letter of August 7, 1997.
