Deep below downtown Los Angeles, Angeli is hard at work. She's not an ordinary member of Metro's team; she's a 400-foot-long, 21.6-foot-wide tunnel boring machine (TBM) that has been digging a new Regional Connector under the city. The project kicked off in Little Tokyo four months ago and on Thursday, Angeli's journey ended at the Grand Avenue/Bunker Hill station, where she dramatically broke through her last piece of earth. Check out L.A. Weekly photographer Ted Soqui's photo essay documenting the final stop of Angeli's underground adventure.
