Looking south toward Area #8 on A-10D, there is an embankment site just north of the cut. This embankment was very narrow and had a lot of colluvium underneath it, and to keep it from burying the stream below it a rock embankment was specified. This is that embankment under construction, showing the benching around the perimeter and Area #8 in the background. Photo taken in 1999 by the Geotechnical Unit.
