Excavation expert Alaeden Jlelaty will explain how the tunnel boring machine (TBM) carved tunnels under Second Avenue.
How does a TBM steer, navigate, or move forward? How does a TBM grind up rock and remove the muck?
Mr. Jlelaty will answer these questions and more during his discussion about tunnel boring machines at the
MTA Second Avenue Subway Community Information Center.
