On February 22, 2005 a crew from Moore Archeological Consulting, Inc. performed a shovel test survey of the proposed State Highway 288 Access Road Bridges Project in Harris and Brazoria Counties, Texas. This was performed for S&B Infrastructure and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) under Antiquities Permit Number 3681. The results will be subject to review by TxDOT, S&B and the Texas Historical Commission.
A total of 10 shovel tests were excavated in the Project Area which totaled approximately 2 acres. The Project Corridor was entirely within the existing, state-owned, right-of-way. No prehistoric or historic resources or features were found. The soils in all ten shovel tests were observed to contain disturbed and/or fill soils over truncated natural soils. All but one shovel test reached basal clay subsoils. No artifacts were observed or recovered. The recommendation of Moore Archeological Consulting is that this project should be allowed to proceed without further investigation.
