MMSD: Cheap Front-End, Expensive Results

The MMSD's original "Deep Tunnels" were only partially lined with concrete (that saved a few bucks, no?) and as a result, at least one Downtown building is settling. Damage to this one building so far? $9+ million.

Because the building owners cannot recover the full amount of the damages under the law, the judge in the case has ordered MMSD to line their tunnel with concrete to prevent further damage.

Henry Maier's "legacy:" buildings collapsing, but plenty of beer and song at Summerfest.
