Return on investment

So, we want to move 100,000 people from the East into the city. Every day.

Spend $5B to $9B on an East-West car tunnel, which would bring more cars.

Seems easy doesn't it?  Even if the $850M is concervative, you're still talking about a big difference in money, and in outcomes.
