April 2010


The test blast loosed more rock than anticipated, causing a 26-hour closure of SR 14 while crews worked to clear 40 feet of rock from the highway and railroad tracks.




Crews immediately began clearing SR 14 and were able to get one lane open to traffic by 1:40 p.m. April 2.

These metal "pipes" on top of the slope above SR 14 near Dog Mountain are where crews will set the engineered charges to blast rock.


Crews excavate the slope above SR 14 near Dog Mountain in preparation for blasting and scaling work.
