BOSTON'S BIG DIG EXCEEDS $12 BILLION

In February 2000, officials for Boston's Central Artery/Tunnel project raised the estimated cost from $10.8 billion to $12.2 billion, citing schedule delays and unanticipated ground conditions. The budget shortfall announcement surprised U.S. Department of Transportation officials, who plan to increase federal oversight of the project. To make up for the shortfall, Massachusetts' governor plans to reduce funds for other state road projects and increase tolls. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2004.
