A Russia-U.S. Tunnel?

Russian officials are pushing a plan to build a tunnel connecting Russian territory to the United States.

The 65-mile tunnel would cost about $60 billion, but some logistical challenges stand in the way.

"The tunnel would mean Russian territory would meet U.S. jurisdiction underneath the islands of Big Diomede, which is Russian, and Little Diomede, which is American. One problem might be that there is no rail line to Alaska's west coast.

The Times named one of the officials supporting the plan as Aleksandr Levinthal, the deputy federal representative for the Russian Far East. "
