Long Description:
There is a wide area where this phenomenon can be easily seen

This spot has been chosen specifically because the outcrop is large enough to be seen from 10 m away and there are no geological complications and you can see the strata in cross section.

It's just by the road.

Biostratigraphy or paleontologic stratigraphy is based on fossil evidence in the rock layers. Strata from widespread locations containing the same fossil fauna and flora are correlatable in time.
