In compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 as amended, Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) Project PFH-51(l), Jasper County was surveyed with respect to archaeological resources, especially those on or eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP). GDOT proposes to replace the existing 8.5 m by 3.7 m wooden bridge on CR 131 over Stalking Head Creek with a triple 3.0 m x 3.0 m concrete bridge culvert on the existing horizontal alignment. An archaeological survey of a portion of Land Tract U-341, Oconee National Forest, was conducted on June 24, 1997 with permission of the U.S. Forest Service. The archaeological survey consisted of an intensive pedestrian survey and systematic shovel testing. The goals of this survey were to locate, document, and assess the National Register eligibility of archaeological resources located within the proposed project's area of potential effect. No archaeological resources were identified within the project area. It is therefore concluded that implementation of GDOT Project PFH-51(l), Jasper County would have no effect to archaeological resources on or eligible for inclusion in the NRHP.
