Geography of Utah. The Great Salt Lake. Reconstruction of Railroad Causeway.
Rating

The significance of -- Reconstruction of railroad causeway -- is discussed in this media item extracted from the 22-part video series THE GEOGRAPHY OF UTAH, conceived and written by Albert L. Fisher, PhD (University of Utah). The series encompasses the political, cultural, historical and sociological geography of the state of Utah. It describes the activities, the land and the people. Much of the video material was videotaped on location throughout the state of Utah, giving the student and interested viewer valuable field trip experiences. === In 1956, the Southern Pacific Railroad built an earthen causeway to replace the Lucin Cutoff. The causeway, 450 feet wide at the base and 35 feet wide at the top, required one of the largest earth-moving projects in history. Built into the causeway were several openings to allow lake water to pass from one side to another. The openings proved to be too small, and the causeway effectively stopped north-south lake circulation. Since 90 percent of the fresh water entering the Great Salt Lake is south of the causeway, the northern arm of the lake was 20 to 25 percent saltier than the southern arm. ===
