Junior Editors Quiz on TUNNELS QUESTION: When was the first tunnel built? ANSWER: The first known tunnel was built shortly after 350 B. C. by the Romans. Those masters of architecture, famous for their roads and aqueducts, began at that period to construct a network of roadways that would link their colonies with Rome. Because of the mountainous country in northern Italy, the road builders had to tunnel through before laying the road. The Romans always engineered their roads in straight lines, which probably explains the high cost of their road building, amounting to about $5,000 a mile. Because of their ability to construct highways, which were paved with hard stone, the saying "All roads lead to Rome" was a historical fact. Today we are quite accustomed to railroad tunnels through mountains and highway tunnels under rivers. Longest railroad tunnel in the world is the Simplon, between Italy and Switzerland, which is 12.45 miles long. The first important railroad tunnel in North America was cut through the Hoosac Mountains in Massachusetts from 1855 to 1873, where nitroglycerin was used for the first time to blast out the rocks. FOR YOU TO DO: You can engineer your own tunnel in a sand pile. Use a round cereal box as the roof of the passage, pack rocks around the base, and cover them with sand. You can pave your tunnel by lining it with flat stones. (Today's winner of a $10 prize is Donna Boswell, of Oakland, Calif.
