Crews Make Progress On Devil's Slide Tunnel - KPIX Report

The Highway 1 tunnel at Devil's Slide is nearing a major milestone. After three years of digging, crews are almost done tunneling.

500 feet below San Pedro Mountain, engineers have been digging their way through the mountain as part of the $350 million project. Crews are within 300 feet of the end of the tunnel wall and hope to punch through in the next 90 days.

Commuters have been waiting 25 years to bypass the crumbling cliff side along the San Mateo Coast, and a little more than a year from now, drivers will zoom through the new tunnel.

Our video report has more.
