Ahead of the 2014 World Cup and Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Rio has started a multibillion dollar urban renewal program of its port district which includes a double decker waterfront freeway being torn down to be replaced by tunnels, repaved roads, a tram network and other infrastructure improvements in the area. The 'Porto Maravilha' project is also expected to displace around 1,000 local residents. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)
