From January through April 2011, the Center for Archaeological Research (CAR) of The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) conducted construction monitoring associated with the realignment of a segment of Theo Avenue between the San Antonio River and Mission Road. The construction monitoring occurred under contract with the San Antonio River Authority (SARA). The ground-disturbing activities included new roadway surface grading, drainage pipe installations, tree removal and relocation, baseball field demolition, and pier drilling for the Mission Concepciόn Portal. Construction monitoring took place under Texas Antiquities Committee Permit No. 5845. No prehistoric or historic cultural materials were identified during the monitoring activities, which followed an intensive pedestrian archaeological survey of the project area under a separate permit. All project-generated documentation is permanently curated at the CAR facility.
