Bike Path in Boston Now Features a 40-Foot Snow Tunnel

The Wellington Greenway is a hiking and biking path in Boston, Massachusetts. The MBTA, which is the local government transportation network, removed much of the show that blocked train traffic. It did so by piling the snow into the Greenway.

This angered local cyclists. But the MBTA did nothing. So the cyclists took action on their own. Working in shifts, over 8-10 hours, they dug a tunnel through the snowbank. The 40-foot structure re-opened the Wellington Greenway. The cyclists call it the "Big Dig II," which references a 16-year tunneling project in Boston.
