Title Constructing the Cross River Cofferdam
Description In the foreground removal of the upstream arm of the west cofferdam is well advanced. This will permit the river to flow on this side of the remaining part of the cofferdam when the cross-river cofferdams close off the main river channel. About 1 million cu. yds. was excavated for new channel. Block 40, now poured to elevation 950, can be seen in the left center, just west of the remainder of the west cofferdam, which will act as the west anchor for the cross-river cofferdams. Since block... The cross river cofferdam was constructed from the east bank to meet with the central block 40 of the west side cofferdam. The Columbia River was then diverted through the west side excavation area while the central and eastern portions of the Grand Coulee Dam foundation were excavated and constructed.
