    They will be building all of our navys ships soon too.

    IMHO any tax funded job must use US labor and materials.

    Cool! Y'all can drive over that bridge. I think I'll remain a couch potatoe.

    I have a few things with the Made in China label. They all have some design flaw. I could go into detail, but this thread is about bridges. I just hope we have some American engineers checking things out.

    Of course, you know that the beautiful (yes, I've been there) Hong Kong Airport is such an engineering disaster that the foundation is eroding and it will, one day, roll off into the South China Sea...not one thing can be done about it.

    Pretty much everything we get from China makes me think of the kids' refrain: "Me Chinese. Me play joke. Me put pee pee in your Coke."
