Japan may have been ravaged by a monster earthquake/tsunami/nuclear disaster, but that doesn't mean they don't still have some of the best engineers in the world. Proof: this stretch of completely destroyed highway was fixed up and open to cars again in a mere six days.
This stretch of the Great Kanto Highway was completely destroyed by the 9.0 earthquake that struck off the coast of Japan. Crews from highway repair company NEXCO started to repair the damage on March 17th. By the end of the day on March 23rd, the road was open to traffic and looking good as new. Can we get these guys over here to fix up some of America's roads once they fix everything up over there? I think this job would have taken six months here.
