      Time lapse: Giant tunnel boring machine's trip to Seattle

      The world's widest tunnel boring machine arrived in Seattle in pieces Tuesday aboard a ship from Japan.

      The $80 million machine called Bertha was built at a factory in Osaka and is currently aboard the 472-foot Jumbo Fairpartner. The ship entered the Strait of Juan de Fuca early Tuesday morning and then was greeted into Elliott Bay by a fire boat spraying water.
