The Mindoro Cut

THE MINDORO CUT 

This cut, located at the highest  
point on state highway 108 
between Mindoro and West 
Salem, is 74 feet deep and 
25 feet wide. It was hand-hewn 
out of hard rock in 1907-08. All 
work was completed with only horse-
drawn equipment and hand tools. 
As far as known it is the second 
longest hand-hewn cut in the nation.
