BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – Massachusetts taxpayers will have to pay millions of dollars every year to fix leaks in the Big Dig tunnels.
The Boston Herald says the federal government will no longer allow the state to use money from the Big Dig's trust fund to cover the cost of sealing the tunnels.
This year, Massachusetts is on pace to spend two-point five million dollars to fix leaks.
In the past, the money has come from a fund set up by the government to pay for design defects. However, officials now say the leaks are a "maintenance task," which the state must pay for.
