The legacy of the Big Dig lives on. Forever. Boston Globe: "Big hike in tolls for pike looming"
The Turnpike Authority spends more than $100 million a year on debt and interest payments, mostly related to Big Dig construction. Board members and drivers who commute from the western suburbs have long complained that the system is not fair because so many of the drivers who pay for the Big Dig do not use it.Raise the tolls on the tunnels, not the Pike. You wanted the Big Dig, you can pay for it, Boston.
