Chicago Deep Tunnel Project
I was recently reading a random article in the Chicago Tribune and it made passing reference to the Chicago Deep Tunnel project, otherwise known as the Tunnel and Reservoir Plan (TARP), which I had never heard of before. From what I can gather about the project (during an exhaustive Wikipedia search), it was started 30 over years ago, it is still going on, it seems to be an extension of the Chicago River flow reversal project, it has cost $3B so far, and it won't be complete for at least 8 more years. So what's the dope with this project? Where are they digging? How will it impact my life? Is this some 30+ year political boondoggle?
