Massive tunnel project underway in Albany Park
A major project designed to protect Albany Park residents from more bad flooding is underway, and it will include explosions.
A new storm water tunnel will be built 150 feet below the neighborhood.
Explosives will be used to remove bedrock. The blasts will be once a day during the weekday, during daytime hours, every other day, starting in August.
The project will take two years to complete, and cost $70 million.
The city says since 2008, Albany Park has experienced two major floods.
