The main 3 bridge over the Coweeman River north of Longview yard is taking shape. South of the crossing at the north end of the Longview yard, ribbon rail is laid out for main 3 down to Longview Junction South. Little orange spray paint dots to indicate the centerline of the track are on the ground between the ribbon rails. Down in Kalama, more fill work and retaining wall work is needed for main 3, but it's getting closer to having a complete roadbed from Peavey down to Toteff. Switches are in place for main 3 in both of those control points. The Toteff Road crossing has been completely re-worked and it now has 4 tracks in it (storage 3 + 3 main lines). Just north of Toteff Road, the new main 3 roadbed curves VERY close to the right lane of southbound I-5. Southbound drivers are going to freak out seeing a northbound train headlight coming right at them!
