Construction crews working to stabilize soil in four areas between the U District and Roosevelt station sites are building noise reducing boxes around equipment that will be running 24-hours-day for six to eight months. The soil stabilization work is needed to excavate cross-passages, or emergency exits, from one tunnel to the other. Crews are using a method called ground freezing.


Tunnel boring machine #1 approaching University of Washington campus

This month, tunneling crews expect to push TBM #1 beneath the University of Washington campus. The machine will complete its half of the tunneling when it arrives at the University of Washington Station this spring. TBM #2 is still on its way to U District Station where it’ll undergo refurbishment.


New art at U District and Roosevelt station sites

Some great new art is up for display at the U District and Roosevelt station sites. Open Grid by Allyce Wood can be found on the gold wall at the alley on NE 43rd Street. Open to Question: Activism in Seattle’s University District by the U District Museum Without Walls is hung on the gold wall in the pedestrian pathway off Brooklyn Avenue NE. Lastly, Nostalgia for the future by Deborah Aschheim is located on the green construction wall on Roosevelt Way at NE 66th Street.
