Tunnel formation is complete

7.4.12 – 1:22 p.m. EST

Seven of the total nine preformed concrete segments are in place… placement of the remaining two won’t be necessary until later in the construction process, as their placement will not interfere with train operation. Now the crew is beginning to fill in the area of the hole around the tunnel with dirt. Many spectators seem to have taken a break for lunch, though some folks are still dropping by to check in on the progress and others are grilling right here on campus!
