Fossil House Road

Project Description

This project is in the Berlin Ichthyosaur State Park which lies in the Humboldt Toiyabe National Forest. The project will make improvements to both Union Canyon Road (FS 024) and the roadway leading up to Fossil House (Fossil House Road).

Improvements along Union Canyon Road will be spot improvements over 0.8 miles at three existing low water crossings. An additional area, approximately 160 feet long, will include stream bank stabilization improvements adjacent to the roadway.

Fossil House Road is a 0.21 mile segment of narrow gravel roadway with limited sight distance. The roadway will be widened to a consistent width with drainage and safety improvements.
