WASHINGTON - After nearly two years of noisy and costly construction, the White House Big Dig is finally wrapping up. But the Big Reveal is proving to be a pretty big letdown.
The West Wing has emerged from behind a tall construction fence essentially unchanged. And deep underground, whatever was built remains shrouded in mystery. Officially, it was a utilities upgrade -- water and sewer lines and the like. But what reporters saw being built was a multistory structure requiring truckloads of heavy-duty concrete and steel beams.
The West Wing dig is the first phase of a four-year, $376 million project. But officials won't say what's next, or when it will start. The General Services Administration says additional work -- perhaps inside the East or West wings -- "hasn't been finalized."
