Under Seattle, a Big Object Blocks Bertha. What Is It?

nytimes.com — SEATTLE - A secret subterranean heart, tinged with mystery and myth, beats beneath the streets in many of the world's great cities. Tourists seek out the catacombs of Rome, the sewers of Paris and the subway tunnels of New York. Some people believe a den of interstellar aliens lurks beneath Denver International Airport.
The wee snag that stopped Seattle's tunnel project nyti.ms/1i9gu4b gets big: Can't be fixed until March 2015. 1.usa.gov/1lxTMVE
When do you think Bertha will get past the Object? docs.google.com/forms/d/1dx4uj… (For those not clued in about Bertha: nytimes.com/2013/12/20/us/… )
