One of the big 200 ton trucks builds the embankment end of the second escape ramp. This ramp climbs up the side of the mountain on a 9% grade, but in order to get the needed length the ramp had to be extended up into this small cove. When completed it will have 3' of pea gravel in it to catch runaway trucks. Photo taken in March 2001.
