The Trinity River Authority is proposing to construct the 5.1-milong Bear Creek Interceptor in Tarrant County, Texas. The north end of the pipeline is in Grapevine’s Parr Park and the route follows Big Bear Creek through Wall-Farrar Nature Park, Bear Creek Park, across TX 360 and TX 121, through D/FW Airport property, and terminates on the south in the Hyatt Bear Creek Golf Course. AR Consultants, Inc. (ARC) was contracted to survey the route and conducted the survey December 30, 2014 and January 8, 2015. Though the route crosses two previously recorded sites (41TR24 and 41TR26), no evidence of these sites was found in the field.

No prehistoric or historic archaeological sites were found during the survey. This follows the predictions made prior to field work which were based on the project area’s location in the Big Bear Creek floodplain. Given the results of this survey, AR Consultants, Inc. recommends that further cultural resource investigations are unnecessary for this project, and requests that the Texas Historical Commission concur with this recommendation.
