|aExtreme Engineering unveils some of the most ambitious architectural plans of our times. Some are theoretical; others are in the works. But all of these modern marvels pose challenges that stretch the definition of what's possible. Watch as jaw-dropping computer animation and first-hand accounts from builders, designers and engineers breathe life into the most extreme construction projects ever conceived.
|aThe recovery of New Orleans from the devastation brought by Hurricane Katrina will take years, if not decades. But before long-term solutions can be implemented, immediate repairs are needed to protect New Orleans from the 2006 hurricane season. Join host Danny Forster as he works alongside the dawn-to-dusk team from the Army Corps of Engineers to repair two, critical levees and install the region's first, new floodgate. From the 17th Street Canal to the 9th Street Ward Levee to the massive, |40 million floodgate, it's race against the forces of nature to keep one of America's most culturally rich cities afloat.
