A cultural resource survey was performed by Plateau in anticipation of rehabilitation of the existing Hooper Store Bridge. The rehab project will include the bridge’s removal and reconstruction. During the construction activities, a temporary access road will be necessary. This project was federally funded and administered by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) requiring consideration of the potential impacts to cultural resources as per Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).
The survey covered approximately 1.4 acres and included subsurface investigations along the proposed temporary access road. No Native American cultural material or features were observed. The bridge, which was built in the 1940s, was determined not eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).
