Abstract : In May 1996, the Fort Knox contract archaeological staff conducted a Phase I archaeological survey of the proposed Heins Range bivouac area, adjoining Longstreet Range Road, on Fort Knox, Hardin County, Kentucky. The bivouac area is irregular in shape, with a maximum length of 854 m (2800 feet) and a maximum width of 274 m (900 feet), encompassing approximately 14.5 ha (35.7 acres). The survey resulted in the discovery of no archaeological materials or deposits. A portion of the L and N Turnpike corridor segment that has been nominated to the National Register of Historic Places forms the west boundary of the project area. It is recommended that the bivouac area be developed as proposed, provided that a buffer zone of trees is left along the west boundary to prevent vehicle access to and from the t and N Turnpike and to maintain the historic visual appearance of the L and N Turnpike corridor.
