Archaeological Investigations of Seven Prehistoric Sites Partially Within Intersection Improvement Areas Located Along State Route 87 at Center Street, North Mesa Drive, Horne Road and Gilbert Road, North of Mesa in Maricopa County, Arizona

Author(s): Michael M. Gregory

Year: 1993

Summary

During late 1991 through mid-1992, Archaeological Research Services, Inc., performed archaeological evaluation and limited test excavation activities at seven Hohokam sites. These sites are located partially within four intersection improvement areas along State Route 87 north of Mesa in Maricopa County, Arizona (USGS Mesa, Ariz. 7.5' 1952/1982; USGS Sawik Mountain, Ariz. 7.5' 1964/1982). The Arizona Department of Transportation requested that Archaeological Research Services perform the work in anticipation of Project F- 053-1-521 (TRACS #087 MA 178 H2729 01 C). This project involved the addition of turn lanes at the intersections of State Route 87 with Center Street, North Mesa Drive, Horne Road, and Gilbert Road. The improvement areas occur within an existing highway right-of-away easement crossing Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community lands. These areas total less than 6.9 acres. Archaeological Research Services evaluated the sites in order to determine if project activities would have negative impacts upon previously identified archaeological remains. Additionally, data recovery investigations were performed at sites subject to negative impacts
