    The project to eliminate tight curves on U.S. 20 by building 6.5 miles of new road between Pioneer Mountain and Eddyville began in 2005 and now is in jeopardy. Along with the 11 new bridges, the project includes cutting new road through forest 300 to 700 feet above sea level on 30 and 40-degree slopes in rugged terrain that sees upward of 100 inches of rain in the winter. The price tag on the project, originally $150 million, is closing in on $230 million. Photo by Bruce Ely/The Oregonian
