More 520 bridge columns found to be defective
SEATTLE -- The new 520 bridge has been plagued with problems, including the recent announcement that cracked pontoons could cost the state another $400 million, and on Wednesday, the Seattle Times reported that six more columns on the bridge have found to be defective. A state manager told the Times that contractors will replace the columns at no cost to taxpayers. The disclosure of the defective columns was made at a briefing of state legislators.
