Just Taking A Break

Not rooting for this to fail - though it's a really stupid project - but something hasn't sounded right about this project from the beginning.
Seattle’s giant tunneling machine Bertha is once again paused for maintenance, though officials are hard pressed to make any guesses on how long until workers get to the cutter head and start assessing its wear and tear.


Because they don’t yet know what workers will find when they start looking at the cutter head, it’s anybody’s guess how long the work will take, Dixon said.

“It takes as long as it’s going to take,” he said, though similar maintenance at the last stop took six weeks.
