Space. The final frontier. This is the section that will
complete the loop. The line must cross the floodplain.
The grade for the final turn is high enough, but not quite

A couple of lumps and bumps, but nothing major to change. The
stakes you see here are a measured 40 feet from a piece of
copper pipe driven in the ground at the radius center.
