SEATTLE —The world’s widest tunnel boring machine arrived in Seattle in pieces Tuesday aboard a ship from Japan.The ship was greeted in Elliott Bay by a fire boat spraying water.

The $80 million machine called Bertha was built at a factory in Osaka. Its 41 pieces will be reassembled in a pit to begin the year-long dig to create a two-mile tunnel under downtown Seattle.

The new section of Highway 99 replacing the Alaskan Way Viaduct will have a diameter of nearly 58 feet.

Revelation 19:16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. This blog is to present Up To Date Prophetic News. My prayer is that this blog will bring others to know Jesus as their Savior if they do not know him the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
