A major minute Quadrangle), Cuyahoga County, Ohio (Fig. 1).Details of interstate highway, 1-480 (Fig. 1), passes through and partially the stratigraphy can be examined best at two sections exposed covers some of the units that were previously exposed in the along the steep-wall of an abandoned sand and gravel pit north-steep-wall just southeast of McCracken Road. Access to the northwest pit may be made through an entrance road to the industrial park, which joins the northwestern side of McCracken Road about 100 ft (30 m) southwest of the intersection of the Conrail right-of-way and McCracken Road.
