Thursday at Milepost 31 – Learn about the buildings that support the tunnel systems

Posted on Sep 4 2013 1:07 PM

The new SR 99 tunnel’s vital functions – safety, lighting and ventilation systems – will be controlled from buildings located at both ends of the tunnel. Crews have already begun construction of the building at the south end just to the east of the tunneling machine’s launch pit. Join us to learn about these sophisticated buildings, how they are sustainably designed, and what the completed structures and their surroundings will look like.

Thursday, Sept. 5
6 to 7 p.m.
Milepost 31
211 First Ave. S., Seattle

After the talk, be sure to leave enough time to explore the rest of the First Thursday Art Walk in Pioneer Square.
