Dennis Shellhorn, PLS,
a founder and past principal of River City Consultants, has been in the surveying profession since 1975 and licensed in Colorado since 1981. He has been involved in a wide range of surveying projects including mining, highway construction, residential development, cadastral surveying for the U.S. Forest Service, GPS control surveying, boundary surveying and extensive design and topographic surveys in that time.
Among his memorable projects is the French Creek Tunnel on I-70 in Glenwood Canyon. Dennis was the Project Surveyor for the highway tunnel and six other major phases of the Glenwood Canyon I-70 over a period of eight years. He relocated to Grand Junction where he managed crews and performed surveys for highway and airport construction, residential subdivisions and most enjoyably cadastral surveys for the Forest Service.
Colorado companies that have enjoyed Dennis’ expertise and professionalism include Armstrong Associates, Western States Surveying, Thompson-Langford Corporation and of course River City Consultants from which Dennis retired in December 2012. He seems to have settled well into retirement although he is still helping out at River City when his special talents are needed.
Dennis is an avid golfer, outdoorsman, fisherman and hunter and has enjoyed the first few months of full retirement golfing and doing some fishing. Bird hunting season is just around the corner and Dennis has been helping out at a local hunting club. His participation there resulted in being featured last year on the cover of the Orvis hunting catalog.
