Texas Historical Commission


Integrated Environmental Solutions, LLC (IES), under contract to Halff Associates, Inc. on behalf of the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Dallas District, conducted an archeological survey for the proposed U.S. Highway (US) 80 Project located between Interstate Highway (IH) 30 in Dallas County and Farm-to-Market Road (FM) 460 in Kaufman County, Texas (see Area of Potential Effects on Aerial Photograph Map and Area of Potential Effects on USGS Topographic Map).

The purpose of this investigation is to ensure compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (Section 106) of 1966, as amended, and the Antiquities Code of Texas (ACT). An inventory of archeological resources (as defined by Code of Federal Regulations, Title 36, Section 800.4 [36 CFR 800.4]) was conducted within the proposed project area to identify and evaluate any identified resources for their eligibility for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP), as per Section 106 (36 CFR Part 800), or for designation as State Antiquities Landmarks (SALs) under the ACT and Texas Administrative Code, Title 13, Chapter 26 (13 TAC 26). This investigation was conducted under Texas Antiquities Permit No. 8530.

A brief description of the proposed project area or Area of Potential Effects (APE), environmental and historical contexts, field and analytical methods, results of the investigations, and recommendations are provided in this document. Prepared in accordance with the Council of Texas Archeologists (CTA) guidelines,1 this report satisfies the NHPA Section 106 and ACT requirements of the proposed project.
