I read this short story about ten years ago, and I seem to remember that it was somewhat new at the time. If I'm remembering right, I believe it was by a female author, but I'm not certain. It is a story set in the future, where a man gets picked up in a limo I think and is driven to a certain destination to complete a project. I'm fairly certain that it is for the construction of a bridge. All the while when he's in the limo they are talking about what an honor it must be to be him.
The story makes you believe that the man must be some great politician or speaker, but then at the end in order to complete a bridge, the man crawls into one of the tubes that makes up a pillar or support for the bridge and they pour concrete over him.
It's I guess how he is being immortalized in the future, or how he gains honor. I'm really hoping to locate it again so that I can reread it and perhaps gain a better understanding of the details. Does anyone know the title and author of the story that I'm looking for?
