As the Italian Government has decided to support the masterplan by the Province of Bologna to build a new Highway as a Northern By-pass around Bologna, the old 1950's East-West Freeway becomes obsolete and can be re-used as a resource to start a regeneration process.

The city rebuilt the Embarcadero as a tree-lined boulevard that blends alternative modes of transportation, including a perfect pedestrian promenade, a bicycle corridor and a popular streetcar line that runs to tourist destinations. A new public plaza in front of the building is the site of the Ferry Plaza Farmers’Market A new neighborhood, Rincon Hill, emerged between the Embarcadero and the south end of Market Street. Even though the top of the hill anchors the Bay Bridge, removal of the freeway made this a desirable location for development again. Further housing and retail spaces were added in the new South Beach neighborhood just south of Rincon Hill, as well as the professional ballpark, AT&T Park (formerly SBC Park, formerly Pacific Bell Park), which sits right up against the bay. The Central Embarcadero in 2001, the city began a project to preserve the maritime character of and enhance public access to this historic waterfront

The city expects the freeway removal to bring at least $250 million of investment in the Park East redevelopment area. The first project proposed in the area, a $90 million complex of condominiums and apartments on 7.5 acres on two blocks of North Water St, is made up primarily of with urban-scale residential development.


As of the beginning of 2007, five more projects have been approved and are under construction in the redevelopment area, representing an investment of over $140 million, an additional five projects are going through the city's approval process, representing an investment of $339 million, and more projects have been proposed.

Restoring the street grid should reduce congestion by dispersing traffic. When there was a freeway, its off ramps concentrated all its traffic on three streets.  With the street grid, this traffic will be dispersed on two dozen streets

 
 

BOSTON BIG DIG 1992

The Central Artery/Tunnel Project (CA/T), known unofficially as the Big Dig, was a megaproject in Boston that rerouted the Central Artery (Interstate 93)—the chief highway through the heart of the city—into the 3.5-mile (5.6 km) Thomas P. O'Neill Jr. Tunnel. The project also included the construction of the Ted Williams Tunnel (extending Interstate 90 to Logan International Airport), the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge over the Charles River, and the Rose Kennedy Greenway in the space vacated by the previous I-93 elevated roadway. Initially, the plan was also to include a rail connection between Boston's two major train terminals. The official planning phase started in 1982; the construction work was done between 1991 and 2006; and the project concluded on December 31, 2007, when the partnership between the program manager and the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority ended.


The Big Dig was the most expensive highway project in the US, and was plagued by escalating costs, scheduling overruns, leaks, design flaws, charges of poor execution and use of substandard materials, criminal arrests, and one death. The project was originally scheduled to be completed in 1998 at an estimated cost of $2.8 billion (in 1982 dollars, US$6.0 billion adjusted for inflation as of 2006). However, the project was completed only in December 2007, at a cost of over $14.6 billion ($8.08 billion in 1982 dollars, meaning a cost overrun of about 190%) as of 2006. The Boston Globe estimated that the project will ultimately cost $22 billion, including interest, and that it will not be paid off until 2038. As a result of the death, leaks, and other design flaws, the consortium that oversaw the project agreed to pay $407 million in restitution, and several smaller companies agreed to pay a combined sum of approximately $51 million.

The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway is a roughly 1.5-mile-long (2.4 km) series of parks and public spaces, which are the final part of the Big Dig after Interstate 93 was put underground. The Greenway was named in honor of Kennedy family matriarch Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, and was officially dedicated on July 26, 2004.
