The Town of Reardan has secured Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) funding for two projects. One project is the reconstruction of Aspen Street from Spokane Street to Summit Street. The other project is a construction of sidewalk along portions of U.S. Highway 2. The Aspen Street Project Area includes 785 feet of Aspen Street from Spokane Street and Summit Street. The US-2 Project Area includes approximately 1,800 ft. of new sidewalk: 325 ft. on the north side of the road from Maple Street to Oak Street, and 1,475 ft. on the south side of the road from Cedar Street to Green Street.
Pre-field research revealed no previously recorded resources within the project areas. The Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation’s predictive model places both proposed undertakings in an area of “Low Risk” or “Moderately Low Risk” for encountering cultural resources.
The fieldwork included inspection techniques to identify both surface and subsurface archaeological resources. The pedestrian survey and subsurface investigations for the Reardan TIB Projects resulted in no newly recorded archaeological resources during the pedestrian survey or subsurface investigations. Most of the Project Area has been previously disturbed by road or sidewalk construction. The proposed undertaking will result in No Historic Properties Affected, and no further archaeological investigations are recommended prior to, or during, execution of this project.
