Crews to Test Ground for Westside Subway Project
It's getting closer to reality. That subway route for an expansion of mass transit to the Westside , commonly referred to as the Subway to the Sea, will undergo some serious study beginning Sunday. Metro contractors will be conducting exploratory drilling as a part of the planning and environmental analysis for the proposed Westside Subway Extension.
A parking lane and/or one lane of traffic will be blocked while work is under way, but officials say they are not expecting much noise or vibration to be noticed by the drilling. The six-member teams will be collecting soil samples for analysis.
