This project was once-in-a-lifetime unique. We work in a lot of precarious positions, but this one took months of planning to develop the proper means and methods for construction. The safety of the 15 to 20 people working at the river’s edge was a priority concern, along with protection of the heavy equipment. On the minds of Cerrone project supervisors were the possibility of a man or machine slipping over the edge of the gorge top during preliminary work or into the river on the lower side; also of concern were the hazards associated with the general unevenness of the rocky terrain across the work site.
