Cause still unknown of Seattle unneling shutdown

The Associated PressJanuary 1, 2014 

After sending six probes into the ground in downtown Seattle, workers are still not sure why a giant tunnel-boring machine is stuck under the city.

The Seattle Times reported those probes into the soil in six locations in front of the tunnel machine haven’t hit any huge obstructions.

Progress on the tunnel has been halted since Dec. 6.
