Seattle Tunnel
This Friday, Feb. 28, 2014 photo shows an open dirt area next to the Alaskan Way Viaduct in Seattle that is the approximate area where a large shaft may have to be dug to repair the massive tunneling machine, which is currently underground and awaiting fixing, before being able to continue digging a tunnel to replace the viaduct. An official said Friday that a six-month delay in the project was a "slightly optimistic" forecast. (AP Photo/Ted S. Warren)
