Interstate 10 Frontage Road Project: Results of Archaeological Testing and a Plan for Data Recovery at AZ AA:12:91 (ASM)
Author(s): David A. Gregory
The project discussed in this report is part of the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) Improvement Plan for the entire Interstate 10 corridor. A general plan for treatment of cultural resources potentially affected by the overall project has been developed by Desert Archaeology, including a project-wide research design (Mabry 1993a).
Ultimately, ADOT plans to construct new frontage roads along both sides of the 1-10 freeway alignment. The current project includes the east side frontage road and a temporary drainage channel on the west side of the freeway. The project area lies within an intensively developed area of Tucson, with surrounding modem features including the existing freeway and frontage roads and adjacent commercial and industrial development.
Previous Class I and Class III surveys identified five prehistoric sites and one historic site that might lie within the project area (Maldonado 1988a, 1988b; see also Mabry 1993a): AA:12:14, AA:12:103, AA:12:16, AA:12:19, AA:12:90/104, and AA:12:91. Archival research and a supplemental survey performed by Desert Archaeology as a prelude to the testing phase confirmed the presence of surface artifacts within the project area but documented no new resources. Following this archival research and supplemental survey, Desert Archaeology, Inc. submitted a plan to the Arizona Department of Transportation in December 1994 for archaeological testing within the project area. The plan was reviewed and approved by the Arizona State Historic Preservation Office. Between January 10 and February 10,1995, that plan was carried out under provisions of Contract 94-46 between the Arizona Department of Transportation and Desert Archaeology, Inc. Results of the supplemental survey and the testing program are described below. Based on these findings, a plan for data recovery has been developed and is also presented here.
