The Big Dig in Boston, MA
This project is placing 3.8 million cubic yards of concrete, enough to build a sidewalk three feet wide and four inches thick from Boston to San Francisco and back three times.
It will include the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge which will be the widest cable-stayed bridge in the world and the first hybrid and asymmetrical design in the United States, using both steel (in the main span) and concrete (in the back spans).
It is the largest and most complex highway project in American history. It is larger than the Panama Canal (if the canal's final budget were inflated from 1914 to 2004, when the Artery project will be finished) and the Alaska Pipeline, but smaller than the Channel under the English Channel. A dam now under construction in China across the Yangtze River is several times as large as the Central Artery project.
The project is holding the line at $14.625 billion
