Description

This story investigates the California Department of Transportation and exposed that Caltrans had put millions of dollars into "a secret rescue effort to keep a 3.5 mile section of the Century Freeway from collapsing because of underground erosion. ... Auditors now estimate that the repairs will ultimately cost $117 million and will require the construction of a treatment plant for the water that is pumped from beneath the freeway."
