Along the new New route 55 in West Virginia there are several fresh road cut exposures of Devonian-aged sediments. Exposed at this particular road cut are black and grey shales of the Brallier Formation. This is the western-most outcrop along the new route 55, which is just east of Petersburg.

This is on the opposite side of the road from two other uploaded gigapans
View is looking South to get a closer look at some structural features.
