The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will replace two bridges on SH182; one at Lake Fork Creek and another at an unnamed tributary just west of Lake Fork Creek. Archaeological Site 4 1 WD468 occurs between the two streams. Previous researchers designated two site numbers (41WD468 and 41 WD469) for different portions of the site. The TxDOT investigations revealed no separation between the two areas, so the entire site is now designated under a single site number. The northeast part of the site (Area A) has shallow, disturbed deposits dating to the Late Archaic period. The southwest portion of the site (Area B, previously designated 41WD469) appears to have intact, deep deposits dating from the Late Paleoindian Period/Early Archaic (ca. 7000 B.C.) through the Caddo II Period (A.D. 1200 A.D. 1400). Because Area B has deep, intact deposits, and time-sensitive artifacts were recovered from these deposits, the site is considered eligible for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places for the archaeological information it may yield.
