November 2020:

May 2021 Update:
Stopped by the road cut here in Addy in May 2021 to see that the barrier had been removed and grading work has been done, samples are still findable.

July 2022 Update:
During the summer of 2022 I met a friend at the roadcut to look for trilobites or at least the parts of trilobites. From what I can tell most of what I found was the Cephalon portion of based on the diagrams produced by S.M. Gon III on his website.
