From September 30, 2016, through October 19, 2017, the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) conducted archaeological monitoring for the Espada Road Widening and Infrastructure Upgrades Project. The City of San Antonio’s (COSA) Transportation and Capital Improvements (TCI) Department contracted Poznecki-Camarillo, Inc. (PCI), who hired CAR to conduct the archaeological monitoring. The COSA’s Office of Historic Preservation (OHP) and TCI designated three areas within the Project Area to monitor, as recommended by an earlier study. CAR archaeologists did not find archaeological features or other artifacts that would warrant further investigation in any of the three areas. Espada Road construction was allowed to proceed without interruption. The archaeological monitoring was conducted under Texas Antiquities Permit No. 7789 issued to Dr. Paul Shawn Marceaux, the Principal Investigator, with Leonard Kemp serving as Project Archaeologist.
