Since anniversaries are naturally an occasion for reflection, I thought I would take the time to take a look back at some of my more memorable cover stories from the last 20 years. March 1999 – "Robbins Changes Direction." This cover featured Lok Home, who had just three years earlier purchased The Robbins Company (headquartered in Solon, Ohio, conveniently located just a few miles from our-then offices in Peninsula, Ohio). Interviewing Lok and learning about the great legacy of The Robbins Company, including founder James Robbins and industry icon Dick Robbins, was a great introduction to the marketplace. April 2003 – "Boston's Big Dig." Still one of the most amazing infrastructure projects completed to date, the Big Dig was the focal point of the industry for many years. Beginning with the award of the Ted Williams Tunnel contract in 1991, major construction was the norm for more than a decade. 2003 marked significant milestones toward the project's completion, including the opening of I-93's northb ch and the south- bound tunnel in December. April 2012 " This article highlighted the mega projects that were simultaneously being con- structe A. The projects includ- ed the Second Avenue Subway, East Side Acc 7 Line Extension. These projects represented the first major underground works in the city's transportation system in half a century. While work continues on the East Side Ac- c Extension (opened 2015) and Second Avenue Subway-Phase 1 (2017) are in service. October 2013 – "Underground Scene." This article fea- tured the massive amount of tunneling work under- taken by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commis- sion Water System Improvement Program. The main tunneling components of the program included the ington Tunnel, Bay T stal Springs Bypass. The $4.6 billion program was needed to update or replace systems of the drinking water built in the 1920s and 30s and susceptible to earthquake damage. June 2017 – "Breakthrough in Seattle." In April 2017, eached eople – in the industry and outside of the industry – are familiar with the travails of the record-setting 57.5-ft diameter machine. The successful completion of the tunnel was an important milestone in proving the viability of tunneling generally and large diameter tun- neling specifically to an engaged public.
