A time- lapse video shows the construction of the Folsom Dam auxiliary spillway in Folsom, Calif., from April 2013 to March 2014. Excavation began in 2011 to remove 3.8 million cubic yards of rock and soil from the site. In 2012, the first steel and concrete were placed for the control structure—essentially a second dam—that will stand as tall as the Statue of Liberty when completed. In March, the first of 12 massive gates were delivered to the construction site and will be installed in 2014. The project is scheduled to be completed by October 2017 and is the centerpiece of a broader multi-agency effort to modernize Sacramento's flood control infrastructure and reduce flood risk for the region.
