The above view is of the SR99 tunnel currently being constructed underneath Seattle. It is the view from Big Bertha looking back whence it came. Her cutting head is about 400 feet in from the starting point. The tunnel, when complete, will replace the aging viaduct that clutters Seattle’s waterfront and threatens to fall apart during the next big quake.
