Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said he’s on the brink of
doing what federal highway safety officials are recommending – a thorough
review of Boston’s Big Dig underground highway system.
The Boston Globereported that the review
would entail hiring an engineering firm to assess the system’s highways,
bridges, tunnels and mechanical systems.
Romney said it would be a “stem to stern” review aimed at
assuring that the Big Dig is safe.
Safety concerns were prompted by the collapse of concrete ceiling
panels in the tunnels last month that crushed a woman to death.
