West Seattle Friday: Highlights for the last day/night of May

That image is from the WSDOT webcam focused on the launch pit of the future Highway 99 tunnel, just south of what’s left of the Alaskan Way Viaduct – the bright green “cutter head” of the tunneling machine is being lowered into it today. Meantime, here are some peninsula highlights from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

    That boring machine sure is an impressive sight. The DBT project is getting lots of interest from around the world, engineers and city planners.

    I find it to be a fascinating machine, actually.

    I saw at least a dozon cyclists stopped to take photos on my commute this week. I think it’s nick-named “Bertha.” WSDOT was handing out I [heart] Bertha stickers on the trail on Bike-To-Work Day.

      It is. I just can’t bring myself to use a cutesy name for something like this (even though it’s supposedly a tribute to legendary Bertha Knight Landes), so you will mostly see us refer to the tunnel-digging/boring/whatever machine … TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
