Caltrans and media members make their way out of a southern portal of the Devil's Slide tunnel project in Pacifica, Calif. Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013. It’s been almost 50 years since California built a tunnel, but this month one of the largest engineering jobs in the U.S. today is expected to open, moving motorists from a stunning, cliffhanger of a drive to straight and well lit pair of 4,200-foot tunnels carved through the stony cliffs of the California coastline. The $439 million project, paid entirely by the federal government, features exhaust fans, carbon monoxide sensors, and a pair of 1,000 foot bridges which soar 125 feet above a grassy ranch.
