BOSTON — Boston’s Big Dig tunnel dropped 12 tons of concrete; killing one woman and increasing the city’s already congested traffic. The I-90 connector tunnel, which links Interstate 993 and the Massachusetts Turnpike with the Ted Williams Tunnel, is expected to remain closed for several weeks.
The disaster hampered passengers to Logan International Airport, who must now take a longer route through the Callahan Tunnel. Limousine drivers are building in extra time for customers attempting to make flights at Logan and some companies turned away customers for fear of not getting them to the airport in a timely manner.
