I think a news-sniffer worm has latched onto the wrong story. This is about the small town of Aztec, NM (which also happens to be my home town). The only archaeological tie-in is the director of Aztec Ruins Nat'l Monument has asked for assurance the bridge won't disturb any archaeological sites.
Hardly worthy of "front-page" status on this forum.
But if you ever find yourself in Northwestern NM do check out Aztec Ruins. It's a small site but it does have a fully restored Kiva and ruins from several different occupations.

Look, do you read this forum? So much bullshit pops up at this site it could fill all the kivas in all the ruins near the Rio Grande. Hardly a day goes by without an article or 4 from Bulgaria's state-operated newspaper heaping praises on their chief archaeologist for finding his fecking shoes in the morning. Or some clown weighing in about the Mayan diaspora to the Georgia hills -- which is unlikely but by no means impossible, but definitely, very definitely, not at Mt. Baldy or whatever the hell it's called. And absolutely no discussion about, say, the Solutrean Hypothesis or the linguistic or genetic developments that suggest an even older and more complex version of the peopling of the new world. So whatever it is this article is about, it definitely is worthy of front-page status. It's all front-page status all the time here at Topix.
