Removing “Big Becky” from the Niagara Tunnel

This massive 18-month removal project required careful, intricate planning and multiple pieces of equipment including a modified jack-and-slide, several cranes and a platform trailer equipped with 160 tires capable of carrying equipment weighing in excess of 500,000 pounds through a relatively narrow, 10 km long tunnel. A Daily Commercial News article was written, featuring our Millwright Division, recapping and detailing our work removing the Niagara Tunnel Boring Machine aka (TBM) aka “Big Becky” as part of the Niagara Tunnel Project .
