Project Description

DRI personnel will conduct the necessary tasks outlined in the Statement of Work (SOW) for a comprehensive Class I literature review and an integrity evaluation of approximately 100 miles of the Lincoln Highway on Dugway Proving Ground (DPG). The cultural property will be documented on an IMACS site form with maps and GIS data showing which segments retain integrity (contributing segments) and which do not retain integrity (non-contributing segments). Archaeological sites and structures associated (including the bridge) with the highway will not be included but integral structural aspects of a highway (culverts) will be addressed. All activities will be conducted under the supervision of personnel who hold a current Utah State Antiquities Annual Permit, and who meet the applicable professional qualifications standards set forth in 36 CFR 61 Appendix A [AR 200-4 Section 2.3 (3)] (see also the Secretary of the Interior's Standards and Guidelines for Archeology and Historic Preservation). All activities performed under this statement of work will be referenced with a State of Utah Project Number from the Utah Division of State History, Antiquities Section. Specifically, DRI personnel will conduct a Class I Inventory (literature review) of the Lincoln Highway on DPG. This will be followed by field reconnaissance with a GPS to delineate which segments of the Lincoln Highway retain Integrity. Photographs will be taken of the cultural property and any significant aspects of the property. We will then make National Register recommendations for each site recorded, and will prepare a technical report of our findings. Exceptions to the above will be cleared in advance through the Dugway TPOC.
