Bibliography Altshuler, A. A., and Luberoff, D. E. (2003). “Mega-Projects: The Changing Politics of Urban Public Investment.” Brookings Institution Press , Washington, DC. This book analyzes transportation and downtown revitalization projects and the politics of public investment in urban renewal. It looks into the political influences of a new generation of mega projects in recent years. The book includes an in-depth study of Boston’s Big Dig. Associated Press. (2003). “Boston’s ‘Big Dig’ opens to public.” MSNBC , <http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3769829/ns/us_news/> (February 21, 2011). This article discusses the Social linkages of the project and how the people reacted to the project for the most part. It also delves a little into the Political linkages of the project. Associated Press. (2006). “Review begins after Big Dig tunnel collapses.” CNN , <http://web.archive.org/web/20060715075257/http://edition.cnn.com/2006/US/07/12/big digdeath.ap/index.html> (February 21, 2011). This article discusses the close review of Boston’s entire highway system after many signs of potential failures were found in the same Big Dig tunnel where a motorist was crushed by falling concrete. It questions the strength, quality and safety of the project. Dabilis, A., and Nealon, P. (1991). “Gearing up for Boston's Big Dig Prospect of harried travel has some wondering what lies ahead.” Boston Globe (pre-1997 Fulltext), p. 8. As she sits in her car with miles of others where Route 93 funnels into the Central Artery, [Debbie Tang] said she does not think it could be worse, even when a $5 billion project to depress the artery and build a third harbor tunnel begins. A related $250 million project in Charlestown's City Square -- to build an underground link and reconfigure the merge between Route 93 and the Tobin Bridge to Route 1 -- has already given commuters from the north a preview of the work that could go on through the 1990s. Already, commuters have begun to snake through secondary routes, backing up Main Street in Charlestown, curling off Route 1 onto Route 99 in Everett, looking for parking in Malden and Medford, near subway, bus and train stations Gelinas, Nicole. (2007). “Lessons of Boston’s Big Dig.” City Journal , <http://www.city- journal.org/html/17_4_big_dig.html> (February 21, 2011). This article goes into lengthy detail about the project and includes all aspects of the linkages.
