Traffic jam on southbound 99 Viaduct, as we’re sitting there I grab my cell phone and took these shots of the Money Pit, err, I mean the construction zone for the new tunnel. I was thinking today about the big delays because they ran into a piece of metal that was put in their way a couple summers ago when they were drilling to conduct feasibility tests for the new tunnel. Latest word is that its going to be a $300 million dollar (that’s a “3” followed by a bunch of zeros) cost overrun and lead to a huge delay. My first reaction is, give me a small cut of that and I will hire a crew, we will dig down, pull the offending piece of metal out of the way, and everyone can continue along with their lives. Anyhow, I digress. Enjoy these extremely low res pics of your tax dollars at work!
