Underway in Onvia's home city of Seattle, the huge SR99 Alaska Way tunnel project is a great example of a big government project on a local level. Opportunities for local Seattle companies to secure a part of the business abound in this multi-year, multi-contractor project funded by federal, state and local governments. The huge and complex tunnel project is managed by two large contractors who have hired and will continue to hire dozens of subcontractors over the next few years, helping to boost the local economy.

"This contract is a joint venture between Dragados USA and Tutor Perini Corporation. Underneath them they have hired more than 50 subcontractors," said Matt Preedy, Deputy Program Administrator. "Projects like this have a big employment benefit overall. Not just for the people working on the job but for the community around them."
