Name Game

Since the world's largest tunnel boring machine is about to start drilling through our entire city to create the tunnel that will replace the Alaskan Way viaduct, the least we can do is give it a name (Cue a thousand "Boring Machine" jokes). The WSDOT says they're looking for "something that's original and creative and something that has significance to Washington state heritage, life, nature, transportation or even engineering." If recent public contests are any indication, expect it to be called Evergreen. [WSDOT]
