Texas Historical Commission


On October 11, 2017, archeologists James T. Abbott and Eric R. Oksanen of TxDOT’s Archeological Studies Branch conducted an archeological survey of the proposed 0.45 acre Area of Potential Effect (APE) as part of the environmental review process in support of the replacement of the existing bridge on County Road 622 at San Francisco Perez Creek in Medina County. Previously documented archeological site 41ME103 is shown in the Texas Archeological Sites Atlas to extend into the APE. Investigations examined the APE for evidence of the site and a single shovel test was excavated and encountered a lens of cobble and larger gravels at 40 cm below surface. No evidence of site 41ME103 was observed in the APE and no archeological historic property was observed in the APE. The existing right of way is unlikely to contained preserved archeological deposits because of previous impacts from construction and maintenance.

No artifacts were observed or collected, therefore, nothing was curated. Records are retained at TxDOT under terms of the MOU between TxDOT and the THC.
