BOSTON (AP) — Big Dig officials claimed victory over a leak that flooded part of the Central Artery construction project five months ago.

The leak sprouted from under one of six concrete tubes that will carry I-90 through the Fort Point Channel. A spokesman said the leak may push the completion date back two or three months to January 2003. The decade-old Boston traffic project has been plagued by delays and cost overruns.
