SR 1, Little Heaven Grade Separated Intersection

Project Client: Delaware Department of Transportation
Project Location: Kent County, Delaware

A.D. Marble conducted cultural resource studies for this large intersection improvement project starting with a Phase IA reconnaissance survey. The Area of Potential Effects (APE) was divided into 26 study areas that constituted 170.9 acres. The Phase I identification-level survey and Phase II evaluation-level testing of the SR 1 Little Heaven Intersection project study area revealed extensive evidence of precontact and historic-era occupation in the project vicinity. 19 archaeological sites were identified.

A.D. Marble also conducted an extensive historic architecture evaluation within the project APE. A total of 35 resources over 50-years in age were evaluated. Two resources were determined eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places.
