Or building a dyke on the bay and beaches to keep the city from flooding when the oceans rise? Makes about as much sense.

Putting a check point as you suggest would seem to defeat the purpose of relieving traffic on the interstate and downtown. Not everyone lies awake worrying about what can go wrong, thankfully, and this is one instance where the leaders of MD county didn’t listen to people like you before acting. Chill out. It’s gonna be OK.

Those billion dollars could have gone to public trans and urbanizing Miami. Which would have taken cars out of the streets and resulting in less traffic, just like this is suppose to do. But with better public trans and urbanization, there would be less cars, less traffic, getting to your destination faster, more people on the street, which equals more safety, and people saving so much money and being in better conditions. All would help the city so much more.

Is it just me who thinks this approach to running the tunnel is asking for trouble, big trouble in the form of a terrorist event? It’s like 9/11 never happened. You’d think following that day, the intelligent and prudent thing to do would have been to include at least a check point equipped with bomb detecting devices at the I-395 tunnel entrance. After 9/11 we banned recreational vessels from Government Cut when cruise ships are in port but here we have nothing, nada to stop a terrorist from entering and blowing up the tunnel. This is nuts.
