This report documents the results of an archeological resource survey along a three-mile segment of Blake Manor Road in advance of improvements involving road widening to enhance the overall safety and capacity of the roadway. The survey was conducted in compliance with the Antiquities Code of Texas under Permit No. 7260. Archeologists from AmaTerra Environmental, Inc. (AmaTerra) visually inspected the entire Area of Potential Effects and excavated 108 shovel tests in support of the survey. No new archeological sites were discovered as a result of the survey, although two isolated artifacts were documented and one previously recorded site (41TV2009) was revisited and is recommended as ineligible for listing as a State Antiquities Landmark or in the National Register of Historic Places. No artifacts were collected during this survey, but a field inventory and artifact photographs were made during the course of investigations. That inventory, along with photos and records, are to be permanently curated at the Texas Archeological Research Laboratory in Austin. AmaTerra recommends that no further archeological resources work is warranted prior to construction.
