Notes
Survey number HAER WA-70

Building/structure dates: 1950 initial construction
Significance: Construction of the Stevens Canyon Road entailed the employment of two tunnels to reduce cliffside scarring in Stevens Canyon. The lower tunnel, through a spur just west of the Box Canyon of the Cowlitz, differs from the other tunnels in the park in that its "portals" are plain bores into the stone, unlike the architectural portals on the upper tunnel and the East Side Road tunnel, which are constructed from dressed stones. The "natural" portals complement other "rustic style" amenities at the Box Canyon site.
