Roadway Construction Page
Roadway Construction Roadway construction projects (both new construction and improvements to existing roadways) result in large-scale excavations. In many cases the excavations temporarily expose ancient sedimentary rock units and their contained paleontological resources. Alvarado Road Because of the linear nature of roadway construction, the excavations often provide a broader view of the geological and paleontological record of an area. The linear nature of such projects also involves challenging construction situations, which PaleoServices staff have developed the know-how to work with.

As a measure of this experience, PaleoServices has provided paleontological consulting services to Caltrans (District 11) on an on-call basis since 1991.
