Historical Abstract:Nancy Caruso is a community activist and co–founder of the North End Waterfront Central Artery Committee. The Committee was established in 1993 to lessen the impact of the Central Artery/Tunnel Project on the North End and Waterfront neighborhoods of Boston, Massachusetts. The Project revitalized the Central Artery by replacing the elevated Interstate 93 with the Thomas P. O'Neill Jr. Tunnel and adding the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge. In addition, Interstate 90 was extended to Logan International Airport and Route 1A with the creation of the Fort Point and Ted William Tunnels.
