Update! TBM Lowering on Wednesday, Sept 30th!

The massive Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) is scheduled to be lowered into the South Shaft starting around 7am on Wednesday, September 30th. The process could take several hours, depending on conditions at the site. Be sure to watch from your homes and send us any photos you take!

We will post photos and possibly video in the next week! The TBM and other equipment will be placed in the shaft over the next week. In October, they will begin boring the New Crystal Springs Bypass Tunnel under Polhemus Road.

Please Respect Safety: The project team has noticed golf balls at the South Shaft site. Please respect safety and do not hit golf balls onto the site as they have the potential to severely injure workers and staff and cause severe damage to equipment.
