Archeological Survey for the Trinity Skyline Trail Phase II Project, City of Dallas, Dallas County, Texas
Texas Historical Commission
This report documents the substantive findings and management recommendations of the cultural resources survey conducted by Integrated Environmental Solutions, LLC (IES) for the proposed Trinity Skyline Trail Phase II Project in the City of Dallas, Dallas County, Texas. The proposed project pertains to the construction of a 4.9-mile (9.6 acre) trail system within the Dallas Floodway from the Sylvan Avenue/Wycliff Avenue bridge to the Campion Trail within Trinity View Park. As the proposed project will be constructed within federal property regulated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the project is subject to the provisions of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 (NHPA), as amended. In addition, as the City of Dallas is a political subdivision of the State of Texas, the project must comply with the provisions of the Antiquities Code of Texas (ACT).
The goal of this survey was to locate archeological resources that could be adversely affected by the proposed construction and to provide an evaluation of the eligibility potential of each identified resource for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) or for designation as a State Antiquities Landmark (SAL). All work conformed to 13 Texas Administrative Code 26, which outlines the regulations for implementing the ACT, and was conducted under Antiquities Permit No. 8865.
During the survey, no archeological resources were identified. No artifacts were collected as part of this survey. All project-related records and field data will be temporarily stored at the IES McKinney office and permanently curated at the Center for Archeological Research (CAR) at The University of Texas at San Antonio. No further archeological investigation or evaluation of the APE is recommended. However, if any archeological deposits are encountered during construction, the operators should stop construction activities in the vicinity of the inadvertent discovery, and immediately contact the project cultural resources consultant to initiate coordination with the USACE and Texas Historical Commission (THC) prior to resuming construction activities.
