The project is excavating a total of 16 million cubic yards of dirt, enough to fill a stadium to the rim 16 times.
About two-thirds of the dirt was trucked to landfills and other sites. Moving all that dirt took more than 541,000 truckloads. If all those trucks were lined up end to end, they'd back up 4,612 miles. That's all the way to Brasilia, capital of Brazil, as the crow flies, or to the Panama Canal strictly over land.
The rest of the dirt, more than 4,400 barge loads of it, went to Spectacle Island in Boston Harbor, where an old dump was capped to make way for a new park.
Nearly 3 million cubic yards of clay was made available to New England cities and towns to cap landfills that had reached capacity.

It just struck me as very strange that it would be pronounced so strongly and with a haste that this will and must be done by 2012. It makes your thinking’s take off and go into high gear…
