As Brad Koldehoff finished his presentation, he explained that there are many groups and individuals to
thank for the completion of the four-year long excavation in East St. Louis along the alignment of relocated
I-70. The Federal Highway Administration, the project sponsor, ISAS staff, the Illinois Department of
Transportation District 8 staff, and tribal members from the Osage and Miami nations. Individuals who
worked on the project as part of the ISAS team include SIUE anthropology graduates Patrick Durst and
Kelly Arnold. It was the largest archaeological project in America during 2009-2012. Now, IDOT and ISAS
have many more years of lab analysis to complete before any
final results can be announced.
