USBR Project Manager Chris Vick, right, watches Monday as contractor crews use a giant drill bit to dig holes for footings that will hold up new powerline towers, like the partially finished one in the background. The holes are 8 feet wide and around 45 feet deep. The $10 million project to replace currently tunneled lines from Grand Coulee Dam’s Third Powerplant with an overhead span across the river is going well, Vick said. More photos of the project are online. — Scott Hunter photo
