After the whole “pontoons full of cracks, gushing water doesn’t mean our pontoons aren’t watertight” argument, we have this from California. After driving over the Bay Bridge so many times, I am considering a drive down to Oakland to cross the replacement once complete – we’ll see if that happens, too. The SF-Oakland bridge authority was able to prove the bogus welds weren’t, as far as they cared to look, but I can’t help but be reminded of another incident where engineers were overruled by management. Mother Nature is a bitch, and physics isn’t taking your call, either.
