MA Prepares To Take Over Big Dig

The contract for completion ends on December 31st, but there's still a lot of work ahead.

"To many critics of the $14.6 billion megaproject, the moment couldn't come soon enough. Under Bechtel/Parsons Brinckerhoff's watch, the project has been hit with delays, cost overruns, hundreds of tunnel leaks, and now news that federal and state authorities are probing allegations that substandard concrete was used during construction."
