Winning TBM name to be announced in December

The deadline to submit your suggested name for the world's largest-diameter tunneling machine has passed. Now comes the hard part: choosing a winner from all of the great suggestions we received. Entries will be judged by a panel including Gov. Chris Gregoire and Washington Transportation Secretary Paula Hammond. The winner will be announced in December, when project officials travel to Japan and Seattle Tunnel Partners takes ownership of the completed TBM. Thanks to all of you who participated!
