Another "Big Dig" Bridge Shot

This is another shot I took of the bridge made famous by Boston's "Big Dig" project.  I'm too lazy to find out what the actual name of it is, so if anyone knows, please let me know in the comments.  Anyway, the "Big Dig" is pretty infamous for it's massive size as well as the massive amount of money it went over-budget.  It is a project Boston took on to make a series of underground tunnels and above ground bridges to help ease traffic congestion in downtown Boston.  Apparently, according to one of our tour guides, the contractor used for the concrete on the project knowingly used bad concrete during the initial build.  Then, it was "discovered" that the contractor got bad concrete and tried to bring in proper concrete, thus making more money for the concrete company.  Well, the authorities got wind of this and apparently the head of that company as well as others associated with this plot are now in jail and the taxpayers are out millions.  I guess the mob is still alive and well.

Hope you like the picture and thanks for dropping by.
