Viaduct for Dummies: It's the pits in SoDo, and other transpo-nerd news

A giant auger drills holes to create the launch pit

Perched on the edge of the pit as we are here at Seattle mag, we never tire of watching the action–-giant, weird-looking machines shoving around enormous piles of muck; huge, Mad Men-contraptions thundering around behind twisted bales of metal; and what is that curtain hanging from the shreds of the Viaduct?
