Oh Hell Yeah, the Tunnel’s Getting Scrubbed!

It's scrubbin' time.

MnDOT

The Lowry Tunnel Bridge in Minneapolis got dirty. Real dirty.

That means it's time for the cherished and beloved twice-yearly ritual we just became aware of: tunnel scrubbin' time. MnDOT just busted out the ol' scrubbing machines, and those badboys got right down to business (scrubbingly speaking). But don't take our word for it. Enjoy this hypnotizing clip of the 10- to 12-hour Lowry Tunnel Bridge scrubbing process, easily one of the most visually satisfying ways your tax dollars are spent.

Dirty tunnels around the state get scrubbed in a similar fashion, MnDot says via Facebook.

Nice scrubbing, boys!
