Archaeological Monitoring and Investigations for the Installation of a Compressed Natural Gas Line for the VIA Metropolitan Transit Authority, San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas
Between October 2016 and January 2017, The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) Center for Archaeological Research (CAR), on behalf of Trillium CNG, conducted archaeological investigations for proposed development activities at 1720 North Flores Street in San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas. Development activities planned for the proposed project included the Phase 1 installation of a 30.48-cm (12-in.) compressed natural gas (CNG) line and the Phase 2 construction of a CNG facility and related utility trenches. Archaeological services were in response to a request for testing and monitoring of culturally sensitive areas along the west bank of San Pedro Creek. Testing and monitoring failed to locate any intact cultural features, and recovered artifacts were limited to diagnostic material. The project was conducted under Texas Antiquities Permit No. 7815, with Dr. Paul Shawn Marceaux serving as Principal Investigator and José E. Zapata serving as Project Archaeologist. Artifacts and records generated during this project were prepared for curation according to THC guidelines and are permanently curated at the CAR.
