RE: Another formation question, this one entirely unrelated to the calendar



Yes, the Dewey Bridge Member of the Entrada Sandstone is found in Utah, it
is named after the actual bridge built in 1916, originally carried SR-128
across the Colorado River until it was retired in 1988.

Listers:

Does anyone know how the Dewey Bridge Formation got its name (was there an
actual bridge? where? when was it named?)?

I ask because a classmate in junior high school was named Dewey Bridge.
It's possible that his family included geologists -- the Colorado School
of Mines was just a few miles from the junior high. Maybe this was some
kind of professional/family humor.
