The Doyle Incompetency, Chapter 23,467

Another bridge begins to crumble under the Doyle Incompetency

The state Department of Transportation added an element of urgency Wednesday to the repair-or-replace decision on the expansive Hoan Bridge.

Repairs to the 2½ of miles of roadway need to start in 2011 - a year ahead of previous estimates - to head off restrictions on heavy trucks and other limitations on traffic in 2013, according to a report on the condition of the bridge.

The work would replace crumbling concrete and eroding support steel on the bridge deck. Concrete box girders that support the ramps leading to the bridge also are deteriorating.

What was it--a $Billion or so stolen from highway "trust" funds by Doyle in the last 7 years?
