Jim Eisenhart of VCG is currently working on two extraordinary tunneling projects on the West Coast. The first being the SR-99 Tunnel in Seattle, WA. “Crews are clearing dirt in Seattle to make way for an 80-foot-deep launch pit for the massive boring machine that will dig the $2 billion Highway 99 tunnel that will run under the old Alaskan Way Viaduct. Concrete shafts have been installed for the pit’s four 110-foot-deep walls.
On May 4th & 5th Jim Eisenhart of VCG facilitated the partnering workshop for the SR-99 Alaskan Way Viaduct and Seawall Replacement in Seattle Washington. The Alaskan Way Viaduct and Seawall Replacement Program includes projects led by WSDOT, King County, City of Seattle, and the Port of Seattle. WSDOT is responsible for replacing the double-deck viaduct, which is part of State Route 99. Seattle is managing the Elliott Bay seawall project.
