Much of our construction is focused at either end of downtown, near what will become the tunnel's north and south portals. Still, there is plenty of work happening at the surface above and near the tunnel route as we prepare for the start of tunneling in summer 2013.
Monitor installation continues
More than 700 underground monitors are being installed in the streets and sidewalks along the tunnel route. These instruments will track any movement below the surface during tunneling. Learn more about our monitoring program here.
Visiting Pioneer Square or the waterfront? We'll help you find parking
There are a lot of great things to do in the Pioneer Square and waterfront neighborhoods. Since circling the block to find parking isn’t one of them, we launched a parking website to help visitors track down one of thousands of parking spaces within walking distance of shopping, restaurants, attractions and more. The site includes rates, hours and directions to specific lots or garages.
