The Saga of Crater Tunnel, Part II

Continuing where we left off...
5/10/05: Still growing...

Not only is the shaft still growing in height (er, depth?), there's also a new side tunnel.

Another close-up.

6/4/05: And still growing...
The "tower" continues to climb skyward.  At this point it honestly looks like it is already above the surface of the ground level.

Note the culverts in the foreground.  Presumably, these will connect to the hole in the "tower."  We'll see...


6/20/05: Still not finished...
The culverts are gone now, although I don't know where they were put to use (i.e., in the crater or in the newer hole to the left).

The "tower" is covered up to the top again...


...but it still isn't finished.

I don't know when they started employing security guards, but at one point I thought about going in the tunnel and screaming while a friend video taped the guard's reaction at the surface. 

I just couldn't bring myself to do it though considering how few functioning coronary arteries this guy probably has.


8/1/05: Covered over...
The slab of this new section of the apartment complex extends a little ways over the (former) crater.

Here's a view a little further to the east where you can see little evidence of what's underneath.

12/8/05: Covered over...
The earlier section of the building was completely finished by this point and this new section was well underway.

The apartments aren't finished yet, but you would never know there was a crater here.
