The massive hole in the middle of River Road near 6th Street has exposed some urban archaeological remnants buried deep below the street. About eight feet below grade, a line of cobblestone runs sloping towards the river; it’s the old wharf!

These stones likely haven’t been glimpsed since the highway was under construction, but we keep our eyes peeled for those buried artifacts underneath Louisville.
