This report presents the results of archaeological monitoring performed by Raba Kistner Environmental, Inc., on behalf of Atmos Energy Corporation for the Atmos Hudgins Street Replacement Project. The project consists of the replacement of aging pipelines with installation of new 2-inch diameter natural gas pipeline within the city of Grapevine, Tarrant County, Texas. The area of pipeline replacement extends along the north side of Hudgins Street within the city of Grapevine right of way for a length of approximate 1,410 feet. Raba Kistner Environmental, Inc., performed archaeological monitoring of mechanical and hand excavations involving trenching, bore pits, tie-in pits, and utility locate pits during project construction. These excavations were performed to place pipe, provide pits for bore machinery, connect to existing pipelines, located buried utilities, or connect to local commercial and residential users. The archaeological monitoring investigations were conducted in accordance with the Antiquities Code of Texas under Texas Antiquities Permit #7861.

All fieldwork for this project was conducted over a period of five days from 21 February to 7 March 2017. No in situ prehistoric or historic artifacts or cultural features were observed during the monitoring activities. Raba Kistner Environmental, Inc., recommends that construction proceed as planned with no further cultural resources investigations for the Atmos Hudgins Street Replacement Project. All field records generated by this project will be curated in accordance with Texas Archaeology Research Laboratory guidelines.
