The Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (SDHPT) will replace the bridge on CR 439 (signed "County Road 129") over Brushy Creek in the south-central part of the county at Norman's Crossing (Figures 1 and 2). The new bridge will be built just east of the present bridge. The present bridge will continue to be used until the new bridge is completed, which eliminates the need for a temporary detour easement. Additional right-of-way will be obtained east of the county road in order to construct the new bridge and approaches.
Site 41WM13 was located during routine inspection by Daymond Crawford of the SDHPT Cultural Resources staff. It is a prehistoric campsite on the south bank of Brushy Creek at Norman's Crossing, about 5 miles south of Hutto, Texas. Placement of the bridge approach on the south side of the creek will disturb the upper 50 to 100 cm of cultural deposit. Except for the location of piers, deposits deeper than 100 cm should not be disturbed, however no cultural deposits were detected more than 110 cm below the surface
