The Texas State Department of Highways and Public Transportation (SDHPT) will replace the bridge on CR 439 (signed "County Road 129") over Brushy Creek in the south-central part of the county at Norman's Crossing (Figures 1 and 2). The new bridge will be built just east of the present bridge. The present bridge will continue to be used until the new bridge is completed, which eliminates the need for a temporary detour easement. Additional right-of-way will be obtained east of the county road in order to construct the new bridge and approaches.

Site 41WM13 was located during routine inspection ...

An Archaeological Assessment (Phase I) Of The West Salado Creek Outfall Project, Southeastern Bexar County, Ronald W. Burkett, Jeffery A. Huebner

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

During August 1988, a cultural resources pedestrian survey was conducted within the West Salado Creek Outfall pipeline easement (two-mile long by 50-foot wide) in southeastern Bexar County, Texas. As a result of surface examination and limited subsurface shovel tests, one prehistoric site (41 BX 785) was recorded. Although some lithic debit age and burned rock fragments were found in the shovel tests at the prehistoric site, there was not enough information from the limited tests to determine if the site is intact. Further testing is recommended to determine if the site is potentially eligible to be nominated to the National ...

Archaeological Testing (Phase Ii) Of Prehistoric Site 41bx785 For The West Salado Creek Outfall Project, Bexar County, Texas, Ronald W. Burkett

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

During October and November 1988, subsurface testing (Phase II) was conducted at prehistoric site 41 BX 785, found in the West Salado Creek Outfall pipeline easement during a pedestrian survey (Phase I) of the project area. The Phase II limited testing determined that the subsurface portion of the prehistoric site is essentially intact, and at least two stratified occupation levels were identified. Although the tests did not produce diagnostic (datable) cultural materials, there is a notable amount of stone tool debit age in the central area, some unidentified biface fragments and burned rock which probably represents displaced hearth stones. We ...

In May 1989, a team of archaeologist and volunteers from the Center for Archaeological Research performed a 100% survey and selective shovel testing on a tract of land intended for an expansion of Mission County Park. The survey and testing revealed that the area was either old river channel or under extensive spoil from the rechannelization of the San Antonio River. No archaeological or historical cultural resources were encountered.
