Description

The Ted Williams Tunnel (TWT) was the first major link constructed as part of Boston’s Big Dig. It is constructed from twelve “binocular” shaped steel sections fabricated in a Baltimore shipyard. These sections were then brought to the Black Falcon Pier near the site and each was fitted with a large surrounding mass of concrete (so that the tunnel section was more neutrally buoyant). Using additional flotation, the tunnel sections were then floated into place, lowered into a dredged channel, and joined to the other sections. At this point, the steel panels sealing the now-joined sections could be cut out and the finishing operations could be completed.
When the TWT opened in 1995 it was only available to authorized commercial traffic. Later, non-commercial traffic was allowed to access the tunnel on weekends and holidays. In 23, with the substantial completion of the I-9 portion of the Big Dig, the tunnel was opened to all traffic at all times.
Ted Williams was a baseball superstar of the first order. The last player to hit .4, Williams placed a stunning signature (“trong>1”) in blue felt tip on this on this NM/MT Hillerich & Bradsby Ted Williams model celebriting the openning day of the Ted Williams tunnel on Dec 15 1995.
