Crews continue to inch their way through the demolition of the Alaskan Way Viaduct, for a job the project’s head calls one of his tallest orders ever.
“I’ve been in the demolition industry for 32 years, and this is one of the toughest jobs I’ve ever done,” said Ferma Corporation’s Kelly Arnold in a recent WSDOT video. Arnold works as the National Projects Division Manager and is overseeing the demolition process.
The difficulties crews have encountered have been numerous over the months-long process of fully removing the iconic freeway from Seattle’s waterfront. That’s had things moving slowly, marked by delays reported in April.
In terms of what specifically they’re dealing with, the list is long.
