Boston's Big Dig, an attempt to ease the city's horrendous traffic snarls, is one of the largest infrastructure projects ever undertaken in the United States. On Sunday, Bostonians will have a chance to walk a new tunnel before cars take over, in an event called "A Walk Beneath the City." Host Scott Simon discusses this walk and the Big Dig with Massachusetts Turnpike Authority Chairman Matthew Amorello.
