dc.description.abstractOn June 12, 2023, through June 22, 2023, CAR-UTSA (Center for Archaeological at the University of Texas at San Antonio) staff completed an archaeological survey of a 1-kilometer (km) section of right-of-way (ROW) along Bulverde Road in northeastern San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas. This work was carried out in advance of the Bulverde Road Phase II Improvements project in response to a request from the City of San Antonio (COSA). The project includes updates to paving, drainage and utilities within the project area. The survey, conducted under the requirements of COSA’s Unified Development Code (UDC) (Article 6 35-630 to 35-634) and the Antiquities Code of Texas, was carried out under Antiquities Permit No. 31149. Sarah Wigley served as the Principal Investigator for the project and directed the fieldwork. A pedestrian survey with shovel testing was conducted to revisit two previously recorded sites (41BX1787 and 41BX2204) within the project area, as well as to identify any previously unrecorded cultural resources. At approximately 30-meters (m) wide, the project area spans 3 hectares (ha; 7.4 acres). CAR excavated 19 shovel tests (STs) within the project area. CAR encountered no cultural features during the investigation, and the only cultural material recovered was modern trash. The survey results indicate that the portions of sites 41BX1787 and 41BX2204, previously recorded within the project area, were destroyed by subsequent construction. The CAR recommends no further work. All records associated with this project are permanently curated at the CAR under accession number 2750 in accordance with Texas Historical Commission (THC) guidelines. Artifacts collected were discarded with the concurrence of the THC and the City of San Antonio Office of Historic Preservation (COSA-OHP).
