Big Dig oops

I normally don’t pay much attention to anything relating to The Big Dig, but this one was so funny it made me laugh: It was spring 1997, only a few weeks after he took an engineering job with the Big Dig’s private-sector managers, Bechtel/Parsons Brinckerhoff, when David Beck realized something was terribly amiss at the then-$10.8 billion project. The FleetCenter was missing. Not the actual FleetCenter, of course. The flashy facility had been grabbing headlines since a groundbreaking ceremony on April 28, 1993.
