Harris County plans to extend Center Street from its current position just south of the intersection at Fairmont Parkway to residential area across Armand Bayou. As a result of public funding and property involved with the proposed project, an intensive pedestrian survey of the proposed linear right-of-way was conducted to complete permitting requirements of the Antiquities Code of Texas, enforced by the Texas Historical Commission. The survey was performed under Antiquities Permit Number 7067, issued to David M. Yelacic, who also carried out fieldwork and subsequent reporting.
A total of four trenches, two on either side of Armand Bayou, were excavated by backhoe, and each was devoid of cultural material. The remainder of the APE was systematically surveyed for any surface expressions of cultural resources, but none were observed. Review of historical aerial imagery and maps also yield no evidence of historic properties within the APE in the last 70 years. As a result of negative findings, Terracon recommends that the project proceed with no further investigations of cultural resources.
