The Big Dig Opens

After 16 years of drafting, spending, and defending, part of the Big Dig opens Sunday, stoking an urban revolution.

"It may not be as revolutionary as the Boston Tea Party or Paul Revere's midnight ride, but when two major sections of Boston's Big Dig - a highway tunnel sunk 120 feet deep and a soaring spider-web bridge - open to traffic on Sunday, it will mark the realization of a big idea: that cars should be banished from city streets, and pedestrians should reign."
