UW Madison Bascom Hill Tunnel Project

What’s going on underneath Bascom Hill?

Workers continue to make progress underneath Bascom Hill, where they’re using a custom-made borer to excavate a 640-foot-long tunnel to carry utilities. The project is being managed by the state of Wisconsin’s Division of Facilities Development and Management (DFDM), and the machinery was custom-made by Minger Construction of Jordan, Minn. for the project, under contract of J.H. Findorff and Son, the general prime contractor.
