There is less than 300 feet remaining for the Emerald Mole! This will complete the second tunnel through Beacon Hill.
Here is the e-mail I received from Jennifer at Sound Transit.
Yes, you are correct…we approaching exciting times! According to the latest projections, hole-thru could be as early as Friday, February 29, 2008! Of course, this is only an estimate, and we won’t know until possibly the day before.
Keep an eye out on our website, as I’m sure there will be an announcement. Also, I have attached a link to a graphic that shows approximately where the tunnel boring machine is…about 300 feet to go!

Excellent! Congrats to Sound Transit for this!
