FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - A tunnel boring machine has begun digging into a mountainside near Cameron Pass as part of a project to restore Michigan Ditch.

So far, the project has cut more than 90 feet into the mountain.

According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan (https://tinyurl.com/j3p4hb4 ), a slow-moving landslide damaged a pipe section of Michigan Ditch. The ditch carries water to Joe Wright Reservoir, which is owned by the city.

The city hopes to have the project finished in time for spring runoff next year.
