New San Francisco bridge built in China to be shipped to US - Telegraph
yes I know, the bay bridge has had issues since the big one a while back.
I won't even go into the screw ups with other pieces they built and installed, cost overruns etc etc etc ...
we cannot even build a bridge span here anymore for a cost we'll pay.....hey buy AmeriKan
It's the conservative way.
and, how is that the "con. way"?
Yes, it's all Bushes fault. We should have the government building our bridges. You know, shovel ready. Those evil conservatives want private companies building them.
Love that Union Labor.
Yep. If you can make any sense out of what they just said let me know.
Other then stereotypical babble it seems you folks don't know what in the heck you're talking about. We've just been talking about the government outsourcing jobs by making construction unaffordable in this country and you all start babbling about private corps being the cause.
Not quite. The steel was made in China, not the bridge itself.
And while I'm not really sure what I think about it, I will say, as someone who has always been interested in the architecture and science of bridges, I'm very interested in seeing it when it's done. It's pretty remarkable, some of the innovation of design.
Think about it now...
They built the San Mateo bridge without any problems. Its utilitarian and not fancy.
The issue with the bay brides was the artsy crap... the look of it....
CC Myers could have had that bridge banged out on time and under budget if it was a straight up bridge.
