Big Dig

I passed over and through the 'Big Dig' this weekend for the first time. It was funny driving over the L.Z.B.H bridge as everyone had their cameras out taking pictures (including me).


The whole experience was rather anti-climactic. In the end the bridge is just a bridge and the tunnel is just a tunnel - a rather Spartan drab tunnel at that. Given the cost one might expect some gold plate.

When we stopped to visit down town Boston I was surprised to see workers already taking down the old elevated central artery.

In retrospect I guess its probably one of the easiest tasks of the whole project.


I read someplace recently that city folk are now worried that all the pigeons who made their home under the elevated road will now invade the city. They had similar worries about rats when the project began.
