View looking north toward Buckner Gap from the south end of the project. The cleared mountain with the four trees left on it is just left of Buckner Gap. A cut of over 380' will be made there to pass the interstate through the mountain. The cleared mountain in the center of the photo will have a cut of over 400' in it as well. The alignment of the project curves off the left of the photo, then swings right through the background to Buckner Gap. The foreground shows some of the four million cubic yards of undercut material being removed.
