Workers Josh Kelly, left, and Rouse Slape spray concrete onto the side of Lookout Mountain near Fort Payne, Ala., along state Highway 35 on Wednesday. The concrete, called "shotcrete," covers the soil nails that are being drilled into the mountain to stabilize the roadway. The project, which closes one lane of traffic, will use about 37,000 linear feet of nails.
