Far Fetched Civil Projects That Yoo Would Love To See Happen

Tongue in cheek a little, but it could make sense.

My pick would be to build a canal, to extend the Saint Lawrence Seaway to the Pacific Ocean..Right along the Canada/ U.S border. Kind of of like the Panama canal on steroids.

Others?

HSR build out in the US to the extent of the interstate highway system. Extend the Gulf of California north up past the Salton Sea.

RE: HSR. Yes..North America is really far behind Europe and Asia in that department.Here in Canada, they've been talking a HSR though our busiest corridor for years now. Where roughly 20 million people live..Enough to warrant it.

This one is totally ridiculous, but how about a tunnel under the Atlantic ocean connecting Europe to North America..Complete with ventilation, rest stops and motels along the route..Heck even from Alaska to Mainland Russia,which I believe was talked about before.

Connect Japan to the mainland. Most likely via a link to South Korea (but then North Korea needs to stop being a rogue country to allow it to be useful for freight). Could also go via Sakhalin.

Pittsburgh to Harrisburg base tunnel (would allow HSR connection between Midwest and East Coast)

Reno to Auburn Base Tunnel
