  • Approximately 16 galleries lead up to the Salang Tunnel in Parwan province, Afghanistan. These galleries, while affording protection from the elements and the risk of avalanche, also allow for more exposure to the well-worn surface of the Salang Pass. In future operations, contracts in collaboration with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will address these areas.
