Eliza Update – Jan 2021
Eliza has been busy! Check out these images of the shaft site at I-696 and our first look inside the tunnel. Pictured in the photo are the rail tracks that help miners move materials safely in and out of the tunnel as Eliza bores through the ground. The other photo shows a miner working on the track system inside of the tunnel, as well as the overhead lighting and ventilation pipe to provide fresh air for the workers underground; and utility lines that provide water, compressed air and electricity to Eliza. Eliza has now traveled over 1,300-ft north from the I-696 Shaft Site (northeast corner of the I-75/I-696 interchange), placing her just north of the Hudson Avenue and northbound service drive intersection.
