This map indicates high historic sensitivity sites. Environmental constraints would include those historic buildings, structures, objects, sites or districts that have been listed in, determined eligible for listing in or are potentially eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places and the New Jersey Register of Historic Places. Until further research is conducted, any actions that would negatively impact these properties should be avoided if possible.
The potential for historic archaeological sites also exists within the
I-295/I-76/Route 42 project area. Early
colonial settlers to the Camden and Gloucester
County project area utilized waterways
to penetrate into the inland areas. Early
farms and towns were developed in proximity
to waterways for transportation, shipbuilding
and shipping needs. Farmsteads relied
on the inland waterways to transport
agricultural products along the coast
and overseas. Also, choice farmsteads
were laid out with a navigable waterway
bordering the estate. As industrial development
settled into the I-295/I-76/Route 42
project area, streams and creeks were
dammed to provide an energy source for
fueling (wool), grain and lumber mills.
Consequently, these are the types of
historic archaeological resources that
may be found in the project area. Archaeological
sites with high and medium historic sensitivity
comprise the environmental constraints
for historic archaeological potential
in the I-295/I-76/Route 42 project area.
