I would say Indianapolis is becoming (almost) a role model for other Midwest cities.
callano, how safe has the big dig been accident wise? does having on and off ramps underground present the type of safety issues that some of us fear would happen?callanoj said:Boston's Big Dig really worked. It may have gotten terrible press for its great expense, but ask anybody who lives or visits here and has been to the airport. What used to take an hour to three hours now takes 20 minutes. The fumes from the cars travelling are filtered from underground so as not to harnm the environment (supposedly). Many acres have been freed up and are going to cultural and civic use.
In my opinion this is an incredibly progressive city.
I haven't heard of any major accidents inside the tunnels or on the off ramps. The main problem has been that there have been leaks in the walls due to a contractor who knowingly sold the state faulty cement. But that's an entirely different story.edsg25 said:callano, how safe has the big dig been accident wise? does having on and off ramps underground present the type of safety issues that some of us fear would happen?
mainly as i said...on and off ramps....i just can't imagine that occurring underground with sufficent view. probably i'm wrong....it just seems so, well, scary.callanoj said:IBut, no, no major accidents. What, specifically, do you think might happen?.
