Join the Alaskan Way Viaduct Replacement program for a free Webelos Engineering Badge day on Saturday, November 8th. Organized in conjunction with the Boy Scouts of America, this event is designed to help you earn your engineering badge by visiting a construction site and performing fun hands-on activities that teach basic engineering concepts. Meet an engineer from the SR 99 Tunnel Project to learn what it’s like to work with Bertha, the giant tunneling machine. You’ll find out about different types of engineering jobs and take a walking tour to see viaduct construction up-close. We’ll also teach you how to draw a floor plan, and make model bridges inspired by those found across Washington State. This event will take place at Milepost 31, the SR 99 Tunnel Project’s public information center located in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood.
