    there are some pretty bold claims here that are not supported by extraordinary support, such as

    I've noticed that there appears to be some sort of cover up as to the exact details about how the construction of this new bridge became such a massive failure.
    There has been so much coverage of this bridge down to the nth degree including full retrospectives of the entire design process, the whole bolt-testing issue, and any other manner of coverage, by many different reporters, not the least of which is the Chron's reporting.

    And the supposition that there is dirty pool in the payment of the agreed upon contractual bonuses is unwarranted, imo.

    Could this project have been done differently?  Sure.  But is there major corruption and malfeasance here?  I really don't think so, and I've read almost every piece of coverage on this project from the get go.
