Synopsis: The first book ever written about Boston's Big Dig--the largest, most complex highway construction project ever embarked upon in U.S. history! This regional blockbuster reached #1 on the Boston Globe's bestseller list. Filled with dozens of remarkable photos and fascinating archival illustrations, it pulsates with details only an insider like Dan McNichol, former director of the project who was in at the conception, could provide. For example:

During peak construction years, the Big Dig spends nearly $110,000,000 a month. The project will place 3.8 million cubic yards of concrete, enough to build a sidewalk three feet wide and four inches thick from Boston to San Francisco...three times.Rats! Some city officials told the public that construction would dislodge millions of rats from deep down under the city.

When The Big Dig is finally finished, Boston will have over 200 acres of new parks, its skyline will be transformed, and its infamous traffic nightmares will be a thing of the past.

Review: "A coffee table book on the largest construction project of all time."--Boston Globe

"Rich with full page images by Andy Ryan, a Big Dig staff photographer, McNichol's book is an appreciation of the engineering marvel."--Improper Bostonian

"Embraces the reader with a rich array of facts, politics, and how-it-was done concerning he largest highway construction project in America"--The Patriot Ledger
