‘Bertha’ watch: Tunnel-machine ship finally docked downtown

Bertha ship docks at the Port of Seattle

(WSDOT photo from this afternoon, added here Saturday night)
Since its arrival Tuesday, the Jumbo Fairpartner – carrying “Bertha” the tunneling machine, in 41 pieces – has been anchored off West Seattle’s northeastern shore. Today, it finally sailed the rest of the way to Terminal 46, which means the WSDOT webcam is now live – it’s a live-video camera, too. The most recent tweet from @BerthaDigsSR99 says unloading might start later today.

    Thanks; now I can see her JUMBO ship from my window (but I need binoculars)

    I kinda love that photo. Red industrial cranes, ferry, ferris wheel, Bertha…captures the current city well.

    Nice shot, but I would have photoshopped the ferris wheel out.

Sorry, comment time is over.
