Soil Sampling Near You

Publish Date

Starting as early as Monday, Nov. 2, Sound Transit will begin drilling geotechnical borings for the potential Tacoma Link Expansion project. These borings will be within City of Tacoma right of way in 11 locations (see highlighted locations below). The work will help Sound Transit better understand the underground conditions along the proposed alignment.

What to Expect

  • Equipment will sound similar to a truck engine running, with occasional hammering
  • Work will occur from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Each boring will take approximately 1-3 days to complete

At times, a partial road closure with detours may be necessary. Crews will safely direct vehicle and pedestrian/bike traffic around the drilling area.
