Western Building to be rehabbed or demolished for tunnel project
Tenants have been told they must vacate the building at 619 Western Ave. by March of 2012.
Journal Staff Reporter

With a 57-foot diameter, the machine needed to dig the proposed tunnel would be the largest boring machine in the world.
