Alaskan Way Viaduct
Seattle’s massive tunneling operation is on hold yet again due to ongoing problems with the world’s largest boring machine, officials said Friday.
The giant machine digging a highway tunnel under Seattle is expected to resume light work this week, but officials still don’t know what stopped the giant drill for nearly two months, the Washington State Transportation Department said late Monday.
Crews have found a hard object more than 3 feet wide lodged in the tunneling machine that’s currently stalled 60 feet under the city of Seattle, officials said Wednesday.
The Transportation Department says help is on the way for a massive machine that became stuck last month while boring a tunnel under downtown Seattle.
The contractors drilling a tunnel under downtown Seattle are closer to finding out what has blocked their boring machine.
