Went with my cousin out yesterday to the city, which is still pretty small and went to the outlook. :) As you can see we were very high up. There was also a walkway platform where the first picture is taken from.
The Pikeville Cut-Through is a rock cut in Pikeville, Kentucky, United States created by the Army Corps of Engineers, through which passes a four-lane divided highway, a railroad line, and the Levisa Fork of the Big Sandy River. It is one of the largest land removal projects in the western hemisphere, moving a nearly 18,000,000 cubic yards (14,000,000 m3) of soil and rock (compared to the Big Dig (15 million cubic yards) and the Panama Canal (240 million cubic yards)).
