Transportation projects come with a unique set of challenges; including the limitation of fieldwork to the right-of-way, the potential for a project to bisect entire landscapes, and sometimes the fact that the road itself is a resource. This paper will provide an overview of the types of historical resources and issues that are encountered during transportation-related projects in Arizona, and examples of how we address them.
