The First Big Dig
Saturday October 21, 2017
The Hoosac Tunnel took 25 years to build, went bankrupt three times and came in ten times over budget. Sound familiar? Anne O'Connor will talk about why the tunnel in western Massachusetts was needed, how it was funded, the new technology developed, labor practices and the absolutely amazing reality that this 100 plus year old hole through a mountain range is still animportant part of our transportation infrastructure. Interspersed with images and music.
