A new report from the governor’s “expert review panel” says it’s possible for the Highway 99 tunnel project under downtown Seattle to be finished late- but still come in on budget.

The report, released yesterday, predicts the four-lane tunnel will be completed in the first half of 2016 and open by mid-November.

The project has been held up for several months now due to equipment problems with the giant drill being used to bore the tunnel.

The Spokesman-Review has more on this projects and why the panel says it late doesn’t necessarily mean over budget.
