So scary. This is my favorite part of the article:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Authorities say safety has not been compromised by problems with the $14 billion Big Dig highway project</td>
</tr></table></div>
Um, I think if part of it collapsed and killed someone, there has been something of a safety compromise.<br><br><a href="http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/07/11/bigdigdeath.ap/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/07/11/big....ap/index.html</a>

That project has been just riddled with problems from the get go. I'm not surprised. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I've always had issues with tunnels. Everytime I've had to drive through Boston I get the heebie jeebies. That's so terrible for that woman. And OP, you're right. How ridiculous to say safety wasn't compromised. Do they think we're that stupid?

We drove through that tunnel, several times, just a month ago. Creepy. How horrible for that man and woman, and her family. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

OMG!<br><br>
I was just there yesterday! Helping my oldest son move into his new apartment.<br>
And we use the tunnels all the time. Wow!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><br>
My prayers go out to the woman killed and her family.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/candle.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Candle"><br><br>
Take Care,<br>
