Big Dig: Under­ground Tour 
Bob Oakes, Sean Cole

BOSTON, MA (2002–06-20)

The Big Dig is dug. The I‑93 Cen­tral Artery tun­nel that makes up the bulk of the largest pub­lic works project in his­to­ry has reached the point at which you can now dri­ve through it north­bound with­out stop­ping. How­ev­er, there’s one catch: you can’t use a car. The vent sys­tem isn’t done yet. So the tun­nel can’t sup­port vehi­cles that emit exhaust. The solu­tion? Ear­li­er this week, WBUR’s Morn­ing Edi­tion rode under­ground from Knee­land Street to the Zakim Bridge at the Fleet Cen­ter on a golf cart.
