Moment of truth

Workers for a Greenleaf, Idaho-based contractor, North American Construction, set up equipment on Tuesday morning to begin performing a crucial part of the new St. Luke’s hospital construction.

Using a combination of traditional augers and a state-of-the-art pneumatic rammer, the crew began installing the final sections of sewer and water lines under the recreation district’s bike path at the end of February.

Now the crew has a limited amount of time do the same underneath the river, a task some have said will be considerably more difficult.

"Our concern is that the river gets up to flood stage, and then boring…becomes an unmanageable task," North American Construction owner Jack Seburn said recently during an interview.

The crew is working just north of the hospital construction site next to Highway 75.

Seburn said he hopes to have the job done by April 1.
