Christmas Eve Opening
It will be another day before the tunnel is opened (last word was Dec. 23rd - now Dec. 24th). This message from Point Ruston came in on Friday. With the closure during the recent sub-freezing weather, Steve and Steve were not performing their usual icicle removal duties. This may be the last time we see this sight.
The construction crews working on Ruston Way are now estimating December 24 as the opening date for the Ruston Tunnel. As you might expect, the utility lines in this area were buried long ago and there have been unexpected construction issues to be dealt with. We appreciate your patience, and will let you know if there are further schedule changes.....
Thought you might be interested in seeing the icicles in the tunnel during the last cold snap.
