Seattle_Tunnel_Project._1.jpgIf a picture is worth a thousand words, a construction video of the new Seattle tunnel project is incalculable. The project, known locally as the SR 99 tunnel, is replacing the above-ground Alaskan Way trestle with a tunnel that will run underneath the city. The video below shows how the contractors are boring the tunnel and installing the concrete rings that line it. An engineering marvel!

Idencia is honored to have been chosen as the concrete tracking service through which every prestressed concrete panel in the precast rings is individually identified and cataloged. With the Idencia RFID tracking system, the Washington State Department of Transportation can associate each panel with the concrete batch from which it was produced. As we wrote in Why DOTs & Railroads Want Concrete Product Tracking, correlating panels with concrete test results will enable preventive maintenance that will save the DOT money and optimize traffic safety. We'll keep posting more videos as they are released!
