UPDATE: Tunnels going down, building going up, and progress goes on and on
Since August, crews at the Nine Mile Creek shaft site—the starting point of the 18,000-foot-long Euclid Creek Tunnel project—have excavated an additional 75 feet, bringing the total depth of the shaft to 110 feet as of today. The finished tunnel will lay 250 feet below the surface.
This afternoon, Trustees visited the Nine Mile Creek site, as well as the Southerly Wastewater Treatment Plant’s Renewable Energy Facility (REF) (below), to better understand the complexity and significance of these investments. Combined, the Euclid Creek Tunnel and REF represent more than $360 million in capital projects currently underway.
