    Whether you support the TZB or not, you have to admit that they are getting it done quickly relative to other big infrastructure projects. It goes to show what might be possible if powerful politicians really got behind some other mega projects and made getting them done a priority.

    Much as I hate the new bridge (see Cap’n Transit for details), I am impressed with the speed. The question is why? Is it the “powerful politician” getting behind it? The Design-Build structure of the deal? Whatever it is, I heartily agree that we need to spread the recipe to other projects asap.
