The Big Dig: Investigations Continue

July 12, 2007
A year ago this week, a tragic accident occurred when a loose three ton concrete panel fell from the ceiling of the Big Dig tunnel in Boston, killing a woman as she made her way to the airport. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Governor Mitt Romney called upon WJE to carry out a 90-day "stem to stern" safety audit of the Metropolitan Highway System.

Phase I of the audit included structures associated with critical aspects of the Big Dig. Under Phase II, WJE will be responsible for follow-up on concerns identified in Phase I as well as investigation of the Metropolitan Highway system.
