This closeup of the big rock embankment between Areas #2 and #3 (Buckner Gap) gives a good indication of the size and scale of this project. The construction vehicles on top of the rock are a 200 ton dump truck, a D9 bulldozer, and a medium sized earth shovel. The top of that rock is about 30' from the final grade, which points out how much more excavation has to come out of Buckner Gap behind it. Photo taken in November 1999.
