Abstract : In January 1996, the Fort Knox contract archaeology staff conducted a Phase I archaeological survey of a proposed timber harvest and highway safety improvement tract north of the intersection of Highway 31W (Dixie Highway) and Highway 835 south of West Point on the Fort Knox Military Reservation, Hardin County, Kentucky. The project area is irregularly shaped. It is a maximum of 500 m long and 30 m wide, encompassing approximately 1.5 ha (3.7 acre) immediately adjoining the roads. An access route 60 m long by 50 m wide, encompassing 0.3 ha (0.7 acres), was also inspected. No archaeological sites were found in this study. It is recommended that the timber harvest be conducted as proposed.
