Field Investigation Observations

Land Use

On-site Landuse
This site is used for parking, and is surrounded by a high fence and bushes. The bushes sit in an approximately 6' wide grass and soil area surrounding the lot.



Adjacent Landuse
The DART bus facility and parking areas dominate the immediate area to the east and south. North of the site is a large public park. West on the other side of I-95 a large area of row houses begins. Large residential areas are also found further northeast of the site beginning of the corner of Monroe and 2nd Streets.


Presence of Children

This site is completely fenced off from the street making it unlikely for children to play on the site. In five visits no children were observed in the area.


Exposed Soil

A landscaped fringe of grass and bushes surrounds the parking area along Adams Street. Underneath I-95 very little grass grows and the area is almost entirely bare soil. Some soil has washed off the site onto the sidewalk along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
