The Interstate 15 Construction – Indian Burial Grounds Collection consists of a small group of correspondence, memoranda, notes and newspaper clippings from June 1977 to April 1978. The
primary subject of these documents is the preservation, excavation and examination of several prehistoric Native American
sites associated with the Luiseno Indians of Southern California which were discovered by Caltrans archaeologists in preparation
for the construction of the Interstate 15 extension.
In 1968 the United States government and the California Highway Commission recognized the need for an additional route in
Southern California which would convey traffic in a north-south direction was needed, and a decision was made to extend Interstate
15 from the Riverside and San Bernardino area southward along U.S. Highway 395.
