Florida International University, Marco Rubio, Boston discussed on Boston Herald Radio


You pay the new hampshire sales tax which is none some updates on that hor horrific story at a florida international university you're going to be hearing the phrase accelerated bridge construction a lot this was the system that the two companies manila construction in fig bridge group used they built the bridge largely offsite and then brought it in and out people asking is that where the problem came from marco rubio said there are some cables that had come loose and that that's what the company was actually working on the bridge collapse so there may be an element of human error that they're working on something and didn't do it right i don't know what i do know is that this sounds familiar to those of us in boston because the big which by the way originally projected to cost three billion dollars according to the local officials who wanted the federal government to pay for it final cost twenty three billion mr by hayes tells the three in it what's the big deal it was technically finished in two thousand six that was the year that they i mean it was a long big project but technically they had the final and now we're done two thousand six later that year a feeling tile panel in the bridge fell on a woman and crushed her to death while jews driving through the big less than a year after completion it had already killed somebody twenty plus billion dollars for a tunnel that kills people all over the country we have tunnels built twenty fifty a hundred years ago the at far less expense that have never killed anyone as is the problem we'll see where it goes how with follow up will be but watch for that exhilarated bridge construction also lots to talk about the fact that for example manila construction was doing some work at the fort lauderdale airport and they put up one of those kind of temporary walk over bridges walk so they could do the construction work you've seen those and apparently of them collapsed under employees wait he's suing them the other company fig has had some issues and they've had to pay off some settlements the reporting i've seen on their safety record doesn't look like anything unusual mean people oh my gosh they had whatever five lawsuits that's part of the construction.
