Bertha’s parts parked on Alaskan Way

Pieces of Bertha, the SR 99 tunneling machine, sit on a closed portion of Alaskan Way, awaiting reassembly in an 80-foot-deep pit to the west of Seattle’s stadiums. The machine arrived in 41 pieces from its manufacturing plant in Osaka, Japan in early April 2013. Tunneling will start in summer 2013. Learn more about Bertha at her webpage or follow her on Twitter @BerthaDigsSR99.
