Results of Data Recovery in North Freeway Tuscon, Pima County, Arizona: AZ AA:12:85 (ASM) and AZ AA:12:911 (ASM)

Author(s): M.L. Brack

Year: 2007


The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) purchased property at North Freeway, Tucson, Arizona, to facilitate improvements along the Interstate 10 (I-10) corridor. Following completion of construction, ADOT proposed selling the property lying outside the I-10 right-of-way. EcoPlan Associates, environmental consultants to ADOT, requested a cultural resources assessment of the property prior to sale. Desert Archaeology, Inc., identified potentially significant surface remains and initiated a testing project to determine National Register eligibility of the project area. Significant cultural resources were encountered, and an additional phase of work was proposed.

Data recovery results from AZ AA:12:85 (ASM) and AZ AA:12:911 (ASM) are presented in this report, and all archaeological investigations at the property are summarized. This study constitutes a 30-percent sample of the North Freeway parcel. Methods focused on identifying structural and trash features, and additional extramural features are likely preserved. Both sites extend beyond the immediate project area and remain largely uninvestigated. Ownership of the property has transferred to Prince of Tucson RV Park, a commercial mobile home enterprise. This business is using the property for vehicle and equipment storage. Due to existing agricultural disturbance, this activity has no affect on the integrity or significance of buried cultural remains at the property.
