"During the summer of 1964, construction was completed on the intersection of Interstate Highways 244, 44 and U.S. Highway 66, one mile southwest of Kirkwood, Missouri. during the construction of the interchange, numerous artificial exposures of rocks of the middle Mississippian Meramecian Series were exposed. This provided an excellent opportunity for examining fresh exposures near the type Meramecian Series. The formations of the area were studied, and startigraphic [sic] sections were prepared from three of the more complete sections that were measured and described. The highway cuts expose complete sections of the Warsaw and Salem formations, and the lower part of the St. Louis Formation. The exposed sections within the thesis area were correlated both locally and regionally. Correlations of the local sections indicate considerable lateral variability of the limestone and shale units within the Warsaw and Salem formations. A geologic map of the interchange area was prepared while the bedrock was still exposed along the roadway, prior to filling and grading"--Abstract, page ii.
