New Mexico 3 Cultural Resources Inventory, San Miguel County, New MexicoCLIENT: New Mexcio Department of Transportation
Conducted under the Four Corners Research Statewide Archaeological Services contract with the New Mexico Department of Transportation, the New Mexico 3 project included archaeological survey and inventory of the built environment along approximately 6 miles of existing highway through El Pueblo, San Miguel del Vado, and Ribera, all communities along the Pecos River. The project discovered six sites and updated 19 previously recorded sites, plus documented 28 buildings, 26 drainage structures, 2 objects, 2 acequias, 1 dam, and the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad crossing at Ribera.
This project was completed through the joint efforts of Four Corners Research (as primary contractor) and Criterion Environmental Consulting, reflecting a strong and well-designed team approach. The New Mexico 3 task order resulted in examination of archaeological resources, buildings and structures of historic significance, evaluation of historic districts, assessment of the project area as a rural landscape, an evaluation of potential effects on historic properties, changes in historic land-use patterns, communication networks, and spheres of influence.
