SACRAMENTO (KCBS)— State Senator Mark DeSaulnier D- Concord thinks the construction of the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge was a fiasco. A recent investigation could result in criminal charges based on what he and many others consider substandard work.
“We know that the bridge was supposed to cost $1.4 billion. It now cost $6.4 billion. We know it was supposed to finish in 2004 and it opened it 2014,” said DeSaulnier who chairs the Transportation and Housing Committee.
DeSaulnier said quite a few people who had worked on the bridge have come forward in the Senate Transportation Committee’s investigation.
