An investigative waterproofing study isolated the cause and origin of systemic leaking that had been observed for years, particularly at expansion joints.

The site was excavated down two stories at the tunnel,  requiring an engineered shoring system to install a new waterproofing system. The waterproofing on the deck of the adjacent portico was also replaced.
