This curve is the sharpest on either project, and about a mile south of Buckner Gap on a 6% downhill grade. The construction running up the hill will be the location of a truck escape ramp. The ramp will be built on a 9% uphill grade and provide a safe alternative for trucks to take if they realize they're travelling too fast to negotiate the curve. Photo taken in October 2000.
