ARCHITECTURAL SURVEY AND BUILDING DOCUMENTATION

1.
Survey for the Loop Trolley, St. Louis City and University City, Missouri.
ARC conducted a cultural resource survey for the Loop Trolley project. This involved extensive architectural description of buildings, landscapes/parks and bridges along the 2.2 mile proposed track for the trolley. Among buildings described were the History Museum in Forest Park, the DeBaliviere Building designed by Isadore Shank, and several buildings within the University City City Hall Plaza Historic District.

2. Documentation of the #210 Bridge and the St. Louis Ordnance Plant. The Ordnance Plant produced ammunition during World War II, the Korean and Vietnam Wars.  Bridge #210 was constructed in 1942 to facilitate the transportation of munitions and materials across Goodfellow Boulevard.  It was a concrete beam bridge, a common bridge type that has concrete beams containing large amounts of interior steel reinforcement.

3. Rex Whitton Expressway Improvements, The Missouri Department of Transportation, Cole County, City of Jefferson, Federal Highway Administration and HNTB proposed plans to improve a nearly 2.2 mile section of the Rex Whitton Expressway, which represents the portion of U.S. Routes 50 and 63 that passes through Jefferson City, Missouri.  In order for this work to progress, ARC performed an architectural and archaeological survey of all of the properties (a total of 327) on either side of the expressway, and determined the NRHP eligibility of these properties in both an architectural and archaeological context.  Properties already on the NRHP, or NRHP eligible, were also identified, and historic districts were also identified.

4. David Hoekel Parkway Construction, 2008 HNTB and the City of Wentzville, Missouri proposed plans to build the David Hoekel Parkway, which would serve as a western beltway around the City of Wentzville, connecting U.S. Route 61 to Interstate 70.  As part of this project, ARC conducted both an archaeological and architectural survey of a 6.2 mile area to be affected by the proposed parkway construction.  The NRHP eligibility of the archaeological sites identified during the course of the survey was determine, along with the NRHP eligibility with of the architectural properties within the project area.  Previously recorded NRHP sites and architectural properties were also identified prior to the initiation of the survey.
