Cement Unloading At Cement

Courtesy of the Coulee Pioneer Museum

April 3, 1972

This was the time of the building of the third powerhouse at Grand Coulee Dam. Bulk cement was brought int by railroad car, and then unloaded into trucks for the final 30 mile move to the construction site at the dam.

This unloading site was built for this purpose, as there had not been a siding of any sort here prior.
In this view, you can see the waters of Banks Lake and the town of Coulee City on the upper left.
