Seward devistated by quake induced tsunami Looks like Montana Creek decided to jump out of its banks and detour through the road bed. This may well have been the last time the two Steam Pile Drivers were in action together. They are driving a temporary set of pile to get the rails connected across the void. Next step will be to bring in rip rap for the up stream side and then use displacement fill between the bridge piling. Montana Creek approaches to the steel deck bridges are now buttressed on the up stream side with large granite boulders forming finger dikes to keep the creek/river moving in its channel. The area above and below the bridge down to the confluence with the Susitna River is a popular fishing spot when the salmon are running. image, large
