Author(s): J. Scott Courtright

Year: 2006

Summary

EPS Group Inc. (EPS) requested that Logan Simpson Design Inc. (LSD) perform a Class III cultural resources survey along an undeveloped alignment of Riggs Road in Queen Creek, Maricopa and Pinal counties, Arizona. The Town of Queen Creek is planning to construct a four-lane, divided rural roadway along the Riggs Road alignment using funds from the FHWA administered by the ADOT Local Government Section. The roadway will have a raised median and will be built within existing undeveloped land and agricultural fields.

The Class III cultural resources survey resulted in the identification of two previously recorded sites—AZ U:14:49 (ASM)/Pozos de Sonoqui and AZ U:16:299 (ASM)/Phoenix and Eastern Railroad. In addition to the sites, 16 isolated occurrences (lOs) were identified. The IOs are not eligible for the ARHP and NRHP, and no additional research or preservation is required.
