Abajo to Resolute Transmission Line Project

San Juan County, Utah (2014)

Client: Logan Simpson Design for Rocky Mountain Power.

Role: Rocky Mountain Paleo Solutions performed a paleontological survey, monitored construction, and prepared a final report in accordance with BLM requirements. The project resulted in the discovery of a number of fossil localities on BLM lands in the Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation. Noteworthy fossils include a partial crocodilian and partial sauropod dinosaur. Fossil salvage activities did not impede nor delay construction. Scientifically significant fossils collected during the project are curated at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
