Abstract

Drouth conditions in southern Iowa in 1934, led the Highway Commission to undertake an unusually large number of road projects in that part of the state, in order to give the most employment where economic distress was most severe. One such project included the surfacing of secondary roads north and northeast of Mount Pleasant. In checking over material possibilities for this project, rock outcroppings along Big Creek north of Mount Pleasant were re-examined and new facts brought to light by this restudy have led to the conclusions reached in this paper.
