Piles of dirt and other materials, called spoils, can be seen in the image. These spoil piles are an indication that a new tunnel is being prepared for potential future nuclear tests. Similar activity was observed just before each of the previous nuclear weapons tests. Additionally, a large portion of the spoils pile and some of the road was washed away by seasonal flooding.
