In the beginning

There were many tasks to be done in the early days of the Fort Peck project.  While the clearing work was being done at the damsite, other crews were busy building a railroad bridge across the Milk River to connect with the railroad line from Wiota. It was over this line that sleds were used for hauling at the damsite; the dredge timbers were so large it took several workmen to move them; construction of the first dredge hull began in 1934.
