Yesterday, The White House blogged about the Caldecott Tunnel Fourth Bore, calling the project a “stimulus success story” for having created hundreds of jobs. The Caldecott Tunnel Fourth Bore is the nation’s second largest highway project supported by the Recovery Act, which itself has created more than 2 million jobs.
