Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Massachusetts Turnpike Authority Chairman Matthew Amorello and a host of other dignitaries marked the completion of the Central Artery Project's I-90 connector to the Ted Williams Tunnel and Logan Airport in a ceremony inside the underground highway.
The I-90 connector opened to the general public on Jan. 20.
"There are two major pieces of the Central Artery Project--the third harbor tunnel to the airport and the construction of I-93 under the city," said Amorello. "By opening the I-90 connector from the MassPike Extension to the Ted Williams Tunnel we have completed the third harbor crossing portion of the project."
The new connector extends the MassPike from its current terminus at I-93 near South Station and Chinatown under the rail tracks and under the Fort Point Channel through to the Ted Williams Tunnel and into Logan Airport.
