    Once all the construction work is all complete, and they all leave to go back to China, you will find they took a lot of short cuts to maximize their profits.

    I believe you will be doing running repairs on those two bridges. I feel your anger.

      Our union's haven't helped - they've made US companies incapable of bidding competitively, and therefore the jobs have gone to those who will do them at a (much!) cheaper rate.

        Bad Bridges

        The Chinese are buying up the United States dept. Our "Leaders" need to worry about our country. We need to secure out boarder! We need to fix our infrastructure!

        This is a list of bad bridges witch some of us drive on everyday. You would be surprised at how many bridges are past due and may fall anytime. You may want to study and reroute your trips.

          If the quality of construction of these China firms follows the quality of the crap we import by the megaton, people might consider a permanent route change to their daily travels.

                  Probably is. The Chinese are probably charging the Govt entity they are doing the work for the prevaling wage rate (Davis/Bacon Act) & paying the workers less I'll bet. I'm sure the quality would scare us.
