Norway is Building a Tunnel for Ships

The fjords of Norway are beautiful, but with varying widths, depths, and complicated geography, they aren't easy to navigate. The ocean around them isn't all that easy, either. To make traveling by water faster and simpler, the country has greenlit a massive project to build the world's first full-scale ship tunnel. The Stad Ship Tunnel through the Stadhavet peninsula, expected to be completed in 2026, will be a mile long and large enough to accommodate a cruise ship! This video explains why it's needed and how it will be done. (via Nag on the Lake)

Just what I always wanted to do ... pay cruise-ship prices to take a ride through an oversized Tunnel of Love.
