The final major cut on the project, Area #5 occurs right at the southern end of the Laurel Creek Bridge. This cut is not completed on the left side; only enough has been done to allow the contractor room to work on the bridge. The right hand slope is cut to a 1.5:1 ratio even though it is in solid rock for about half of its height. Note how well the grass is now growing on the slope. Photo taken in May 1999.
