    Seems Columbus has a new tunnel boring drill, in order to bore 4 1/2 mile sewer lines. Its sure interesting that the city wanted to public to know this. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2012/04/13/540-foot-long-machine-to-bore-412-mile-sewer-line.html

    Does anyone know if the City owns this boring drill ? Or are we leasing it? If we own it, well maybe when they are done with the sewer lines they can drill Columbus a Subway tunnel(HA!)

    I seriously doubt the city owns the hardware. that’s what you have contractors for.

    also, who names a machine made for drilling after their wife? you think there aren’t job site jokes about that?

    The tunneling machine is named after the project manager’s wife, and she’ll stretch 540 feet when she’s completed.

    Um. Yeah.
