Boston's $14.8 billion Mausoleum for the Private Auto

Washington Post

After a history marked by engineering triumphs, as well as tunnel leaks, epic traffic jams, last year's death of a motorist crushed by concrete ceiling panels and a price tag that soared from $2.6 billion to a staggering $14.8 billion, there's little appetite for celebration.

- Well that was money well spent. Just imagine how much transit you could have built for the same amount.

Update: Sure it was a rip off, but as Atrios reminds us, it cost less than two months in Iraq.
