Milepost 31 Speaker Series -- Archaeology and the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement Program

Posted on Sep 30 2013 3:47 PM

Past meets future as Bertha, the SR 99 tunneling machine, begins digging through Seattle’s first neighborhood, Pioneer Square. Join us for this month’s speaker series to hear how the Washington State Department of Transportation is protecting 20th century history as we build this 21st century project. See what archaeologists have uncovered in the south and north portal areas, and learn about their monitoring plans as the project continues.
