Pictures from August 25, 2009 Far Detector Site Visit
Files in Document:
Notes and Changes:
Photos 1-6 are at or near the A&P trailer at the start of Bright Star Road. Photos 7-10 are on Right Star Road. Photos 11-20 are at the Far Detector Site.

Note on some of the pictures:

3: Senator Al Franken was supposed to visit the site a couple of weeks ago, but could not due to wet conditions. He was taken to MINOS instead.

7: When the road is built in wet areas, it is initially built several feet higher to allow the earth to compact. The excess (surcharge) is then removed.

8: Crushed rock from the excavation is being used in the road preparation. See photos 11 and 12.

10: The resident engineer is Steve Connelly (sp?) from the firm of Burns and McDonnell.

14: The pit is being excavated in two lifts, so it will eventually be twice as deep as it is now.
