Bertha on schedule to resume tunneling by Christmas
Bertha could resume tunneling before Christmas if work stays on schedule.
Seattle Tunnel Partners Project Director Chris Dixon told the Seattle City Council that crews are in the "final stages" of testing the boring machine that is being pieced together after months of repairs.
"We may be in position to resume tunneling before Christmas," Dixon said. Whether that happens will be determined by the events that unfold in the next week or so, he added.
