All entries are in for the Road Header Rendezvous Challenge. Thank you to all that participated! As of today, miners are within 120 feet of holing through!
Project neighbors, tunnel enthusiasts and the general public all tried figure out when the Irvington-Vargas hole-through would take place. Entries ranged from June 1 through July 20. Here’s a look at the final entries:
The winner will be the person that correctly guessed the day and timeframe when tunnel crews meet underground. If no one selects the square with the date and time of the hole-through then the “Price is Right” rule goes into effect. The person with the closest selection without going over is the winner.
Jane from Fremont selects June 22 6:01PM – 12:00 AM
John from Sunol selects June 23 12:01 PM – 6:00 PM
The actual hole-through takes place on June 23 between 6:01 AM – 12:00 PM. Jane is the winner because she guessed closest to the actual hole-through without overshooting her estimate.
The winner of the challenge will be contacted by the SFPUC and receive a prize pack featuring local gift certificates and SFPUC gear.
If you didn’t get a chance to participate in this hole-through challenge you’ll have another chance. The main hole-through of the 3.5 mile tunnel will take place sometime in 2013. Only 9,533 feet to go!
