Seattle’s tunneling machine Bertha veers a few inches off course before final stretch
SEATTLE -- Recent surveys have found that Seattle's new highway tunnel is a few inches off course and digging has stopped until next week while more measurements are made. Seattle Tunnel Partners project manager Chris Dixon said Wednesday that surveys found the concrete tunnel rings being installed behind the tunneling machine known as Bertha varied "a couple inches" beyond a 6-inch tolerance limit.
