ARCHAEOLOGICAL LITERATURE REVIEWS
FOR INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS
An Archaeological Literature Review (ALR) is typically required during the permitting process for infrastructure improvement projects in Hawaii. The ALR involves researching the State Historic Preservation Division archives to collect and analyze all past archaeological studies in the vicinity of a proposed project. The goal of the ALR is to determine if historic properties may be affected by the project and to recommend mitigation measures, such as monitoring during construction, if impacts are anticipated.
PCSI has completed ALR reports for hundreds of infrastructure projects throughout the State, including road improvements, traffic signalization work, water and sewer line replacements, cell towers, renewable energy facilities, and rockfall mitigation measures. Our clients have included State and municipal agencies as well as Architectural/Engineering firms and builders.
