In Seattle there has been a debate going on for months, with the already approved tunnel to replace the aging eyesore of a bridge that runs along the city. The mayor has been ranting about his opposition since prior to his election and since. He would rather not spend the money. But voters have said via a referendum to build the tunnel. Yes it's going to be expensive, but it will make Seattle a better more beautiful city to live it. It will move cars from the streets to the underground, cutting noise and beautifying the city.
