Camden County Route 5 - July 2006 Photos


Photos from July 24-28:

Route 5 construction site.

Bulldozers and scrapers continue moving earth at the project site. This view is from Lake Road 84, facing south.

Culvert pipe for the project is 84 inches in diameter.

These pipes are 84 inches in diameter and will help control drainage around the new highway.


Photos from July 10-14:

A track hoe loads dirt into dump trucks.

The track hoe pictured has a 10-cubic-yard bucket, which can fill these dump trucks in about three scoops. Standard track hoes usually hold about 4-5 cubic yards of dirt. The dump trucks pictured are also larger than standard size, but small compared to some of the other trucks on site. As the project area is completely cleared of trees and bush, the excavation amount will jump to anywhere between 30,000 to 40,000 cubic yards per day.

A scraper unit and bulldozers at work in the project area.

The special scraper unit on the right is pulled by a bulldozer, allowing the bulldozer to scoop and move its own dirt. Most scrapers require a unit with tires to pull it and a bulldozer to push it from behind. The scraper serves the same purpose as a track hoe and dump truck, but on a smaller scale.

Water trucks provide moisture to the project area.

Warm, dry weather means crews must haul water in 5,000 gallon water trucks to keep the ground moist and easy to move. When moisture content is too low, the soil won't compact properly.


Photos from July 3-7:

Grading and clearing continues in the project area.

As the summer progresses, crews continue clearing trees and brush, hauling excavated material, and grading and compacting fill areas.

culvert pipe installation

Drainage pipes will be installed as crews clear the project area. Right now crews are working a couple miles north of Camdenton, east of the current Route 5.
