Traverse City Tunnels

Here’s a short piece about the tunnels under the former Traverse City State Hospital‘s Building 50: The Tunnels Underneath Building 50. It’s from a segment called Jack’s Journal by reporter Jack O’Mally of Michigan’s 9&10 News. It’s only mildly interesting if you’re at all knowledgeable about Kirkbride tunnels, but if you’re not or you want to hear developer Ray Minervini’s thoughts on the tunnels and what might be done with them, check it out.

    I though it was interesting, not great but worth 2min of your time.

    I think it is interesting that they are even considering reuse of the tunnels for anything. Most owners/contractors would seal them up from the start for liability purposes.
