Description

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry said Tuesday he will prevent the former head of Boston's $14.6 billion "Big Dig," Richard Capka, from becoming head of the Federal Highway Administration. "I'm afraid Richard Capka could be the Brownie of highways," Kerry said, referring to former Federal Emergency Management Agency chief Michael Brown, who became the scapegoat for the inept federal response to Hurricane Katrina. Capka, nominated earlier this month by President Bush for the top highway job, was chief executive officer of the project from January 2001 to June 2002 until his position was terminated. The project is to replace a choked, elevated highway through the city with a wider underground expressway.
