Video: Bertha is more damaged than originally thought

AGC SmartBrief | May 21, 2015

Bertha, the plagued tunnel-boring machine at the Alaskan Way Viaduct replacement project in Seattle, has been dismantled and has revealed more damage than was expected. Grit made its way into the rubber bearing seals, steel casings around the seals broke apart, and pinion gears and the teeth that spin the drill were cracked. Tunneling at the $1.35 billion project was to restart in August, but that looks unlikely now. KING-TV (Seattle) (05/18) The Seattle Times (05/19) SeattlePI.com (05/18)
