Geography comments: "identified during a survey of access roads for Lock and Dam No. 5 of the Red River Waterway... about 30 km south of Shreveport"
this is apparently the Red River dam immediately to the west of the Loggy Bayou Wildlife Management Area (coordinate based on Loggy Bayou)
there are two rejected radiocarbon dates, and the site is assigned to "ca. A.D. 1650-1710" based on pottery and correlation to the McLelland site, which is only 200 m away
