Caldecott Fourth Bore Dead

According to the Chronicle, the economy is so moribund that the state of California no longer has the financing to start work drilling the fourth bore of the Caldecott Tunnel. The California Transportation Commission froze funding for the bore yesterday, shelving the project indefinitely. It’s just as well; with all those Contra Costa properties in default, no one will be commuting through the tunnel anyway.
