BCT Lecture: Dan McNichol / The Big Dig: The Infamous Mega Project That Remastered Boston’s Plan, Advanced Civil Engineering and Created a Generational Architectural & Landscaping Redux @ Zoom

For over two decades, Dan McNichol was the spokesperson for the largest, most complex highway construction project ever embarked upon in U.S. history:  Boston’s Big Dig. McNichol will discuss the management of this mega-public works project, officially known as the Central Artery/Tunnel Project , sharing lessons learned as well as describing the civil engineering feats of innovative tunnel designs, the creation of one of the world’s largest ventilation systems, and the construction of a cable stayed bridge over the Charles River in Boston. 

This lecture is cosponsored by the departments of Architecture and Landscape Architecture &Regional Planning.
