Colorado Midland Hagerman Pass Unfinished Tunnel

Construction of this tunnel on the east slope of Hagerman Pass ceased in 1887 in favor of an alternate routing via Hagerman Trestle which was faster to construct. It is unknown how much, if any, of the tunnel bore was drilled. As seen here, a short cut and fill were completed for the east portal of the intended 1000-foot long curved tunnel.
