Boring Seattle Tunnel
Former Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire, right, and former Transportation Secretary Paula Hammond, left, applaud during a ceremony to christen "Bertha," the massive tunnel boring machine that is expected to spend the next 14 months drilling a two-mile tunnel to replace the 60-year-old Alaskan Way Viaduct, Saturday, July 20, 2013 in Seattle. The tunnel will replace the viaduct, a double deck highway along the downtown Seattle waterfront. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)
