This report documents the substantive findings and management recommendations of a cultural resources survey conducted by Integrated Environmental Solutions, LLC (IES) for the Eden Road Realignment Project in the City of Arlington, Tarrant County, Texas. As the City of Arlington is a political entity of the State of Texas, it is required to comply with the Antiquities Code of Texas (ACT). In addition, as the project will require a Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) Nationwide Permit (NWP) from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), portions of the project are subject to the provisions of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) of 1966, as amended. All work conformed to 36 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 800, and 13 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) 26, which outline the regulations for implementing Section 106 of the NHPA and the ACT, respectively. The goal of the survey was to locate, identify, and assess any cultural resources, which include standing historic-age buildings/structures and archeological sites that could be adversely affected by the proposed development, and to evaluate such resources for their potential eligibility for listing as a State Antiquities Landmark (SAL) or eligibility for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).

The cultural resources survey was conducted by Project Archeologist Thomas Chapman and Staff Archeologist Alexandra Younger on 08 May 2018 under Texas Antiquities Permit No. 8398. The Area of Potential Effects (APE), located at the intersection of Eden Road and Curry Road, encompasses approximately 24.7 acres. During the IES survey, no archeological sites were documented within the APE. No further work is warranted. However, if any cultural resources, other than those documented within this report, are encountered during construction, the operators should stop construction activities and immediately contact the project environmental representative to initiate coordination with the USACE and THC prior to resuming any construction activities.
