The new Gotthard tunnel is now open! (sort of)

Billed as a marvel in engineering, the Gotthard base tunnel is now open in Switzerland (though not accepting passenger traffic for another bunch of months).  It's quite impressive all around and will definitely save travel time for trips to the north and south through the country.  It also has unique safety aspects with evacuation areas and tunnels throughout.  More info can be found here.

I'm looking forward to trying it on a future trip - here's hoping we can figure out something similar in the US someday.
