The launch of the Crenshaw/LAX Line’s tunnel boring machine (TBM) Harriet is now weeks away. The first pieces of the massive tunneling machine were lowered into the excavation site at Expo/Crenshaw in late February.

Since then, work crews have been busy piecing together the machine’s trailing gear as well as the key components needed for Harriet’s initial launch into the soil. The photos above show the progress since we last saw her.

At launch Harriet will begin tunneling south under Crenshaw Boulevard from Exposition Boulevard toward Leimert Park. A fact sheet with more details about the TBM and its role in the project can be viewed here.
