The 42" drainage pipe being installed in the median around Escape Ramp #2. This is the main drain pipe carrying stormwater runoff in this area; the catch basins on the side of the road all will feed into this one. It is in the median to make sure if any landslides or shifting of the embankment take place along the edge, the system will remain intact. The pipe trench will be filled with the soil on the left; the rock material on the right will be disposed of. Photo taken in June 2001.
