In July 2016, a remote-controlled microtunnel boring machine completed two tunnels underneath the Lake Washington Ship Canal as part of a King County Fremont Siphon Replacement Project. Watch as the 26-foot-long, 7-foot-wide machine is hoisted from its exit pit in Fremont.

Project description

King County is replacing the Fremont Siphon, a major sewer pipe running under the Ship Canal between Fremont and Queen Anne. The new siphon will be located west of the existing siphon to reduce project risks and impacts to the community. Construction begins in early 2015 and will continue until early 2017. The old siphon will be decommissioned.
