Two examples of massively mismanaged projects are TAURUS and the Big Dig. The first, formally called the London Stock Exchange
But even TAURUS Paled next to the biggest, most expensive public works project in U.S. history—Boston’s 15-year-long Central Artery/Tunnel Project. Called the Big Dig, this was perhaps the poorest and most felonious case of project mismanagement in decades. From a starting $2 billion budget to a final price tag of $15 billion, the Big Dig cost more than the Panama Canal, Hoover Darn, or Interstate 95, the 1,919-mile highway between Maine and Florida.
