Archaeological Survey, Bridge Replacements Perrin Road and Gregg/Lent Road, Fort A.P. Hill (AP2012.001)

Summary

The Fort A.P. Hill Cultural Resource Manager, under the Environmental Division of the Directorate of Public Works within Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia, has completed Phase I archaeological survey in association with the replacement of two existing bridges at Fort A.P. Hill, Caroline County, Virginia. The project includes (1) the removal of two extant wood bridges on Mill Creek, one located at Perrin Road and one at Gregg/Lent Road, and (2) the construction of two concrete bridges at those same locations. The area of potential effect for the undertaking includes 0.1 hectares (0.22 acres) at the Perrin Road bridge and 0.12 hectares (0.30 acres) at the Gregg/Lent Road bridge, for a total area of 0.22 hectares (0.52 acres). The linear road distance for the project includes 78 meters (256 feet or 0.048 miles) at the Perrin Road bridge and 80 meters (260 feet or 0.049 miles) at the Gregg/Lent Road bridge, for a total length of 158 meters (516 feet or 0.097 miles).

The objective of the archaeological survey was to identify any historic properties that may be located within the APE and evaluate the potential eligibility of any such resources for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. No archaeological sites, artifacts, intact cultural features, or intact cultural deposits were encountered within the APE. As both extant bridges (1) are less than 50 years old, (2) lack integrity, and (3) have no associations that would give these bridges exceptional importance, neither the Perrin Road bridge nor the Gregg/Lent Road bridge represents a historic property.

This project contains the survey report.
