AACE Seattle Section June 11th, 2020 Webinar: Completing the Bellevue Downtown Tunnel On Time and Under Budget, Challenges and Success Stories!

SYNOPSIS: The Downtown Bellevue Tunnel (DBT) is part of Sound Transit’s $3.7 billion East Link Extension Program, a 14-mile extension of the Sound Transit (ST) light rail transit system from downtown Seattle, across a floating bridge over Lake Washington, to the cities of Mercer Island, Bellevue, and Redmond. The DBT project consists of a 250-foot-long cut-and-cover portal structure at the southern end, a 1,983-foot-long Soft Ground Sequential Excavation Method (SEM) tunnel, and a mid-tunnel access shaft with a short adit connecting it to the tunnel.

This presentation will provide an overview of the SEM tunnel and the steps how the project team, lead by McMillen Jacobs Associates was able to complete this high profile project on time and under budget.

PUGET SOUND GATEWAY PROGRAM (Project Controls and Project Management) – Knowing the Truth, Handling The Truth

14 May 2020

SYNOPSIS:
The SR 509 Completion Project extends SR 509 to I-5 near Tukwila, adds a southern access point to Sea-Tac International Airport, and improves service between industrial districts by allowing general purpose traffic and trucks to bypass I-5, SR 99 and local streets.

When finished, SR 509 will be a key component of the Seattle and south King County transportation network. Along with the SR 99 tunnel improvements, the project provides a critical north-south alternative to I-5 through Seattle and King County.

Check out our video about the SR 509 Completion Project to learn about the project’s benefits and get a glimpse of what it will look like when it’s completed.
