Join the ASME Baltimore Section and presenter Andrew S. Natsios for a talk on the Big Dig. The Central Artery/Tunnel Project, commonly known as the Big Dig, was a megaproject in Boston that rerouted the Central Artery of I-93. Planning began in 1982; construction was carried out from 1991 to 2006; and the project concluded on December 31, 2007. This talk will describe the project, its goals, what went right and wrong, and how the speaker was brought in to lead and get the project back under control. The talk will also describe all that had to be overcome to get the project done including the politics, the budget/funding, and all of the obstacles that needed to be dealt with. Andrew S. Natsios is an Executive Professor at the Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M University (2012-present) and Director of the Scowcroft Institute of International Affairs.
