On February 3, 2016, Jon Budd - TxDOT staff archeologist, conducted an intensive archeological survey of the undertaking's area of potential effects (APE) for the bridge replacement on Brown County Road 225 at Clear Creek. A new bridge is proposed to be installed on new location approximately 140 feet north of the existing bridge. The road will be realigned to align with the proposed new bridge. The existing bridge is historic and will be left in place. The investigation consisted of a one hundred percent pedestrian survey of the 3.2 acres of the project area which includes 1.0 acre of proposed new right of way. In addition, a total of four Gradall Trenches were excavated into the proposed new right of way. No archeological remains were observed. TxDOT recommended that the inventory of the APE is complete, a finding of "no historic properties affected", and no further work is warranted. Since no archeological artifacts were observed, none were collected, and none were curated.
