MIKE MULLIGAN AND HIS STEAM SHOVEL*

Graveyard Shift


Not actually a steam shovel, this excavator and workers dig well into the night to complete this first section of road work along Alder, one of Walla Walla's major downtown business streets. Apparently, unanticipated water main replacements caused this late night crunch to keep the project moving forward in a timely manner.
