No resting on their laurels

Only 18 months or so after finishing the longest sea bridge in the world, Chinese officials announced this week they're getting started on one that will shatter the new record. The 31-mile Y-shaped structure will connect mainland China with Macau and Hong Kong when it's completed in 2015. It's expected to feature an underwater tunnel with artificial islands and cost about $6.75 billion.

They say, "Everything's bigger in Texas," but I'm not sure how our friends in the Lone Star State could top this one.

So, is there a chance your firm could get some work out of this project? What do you think of the idea? Are there other places you think a bridge like this, or maybe an even longer one, could be built here in the U.S.?
