Description

WFLA-TV reports on the "premature corrosion of the Sunshine Skyway and other post-tensioned concrete bridges in Florida." The stories describe how the state Department of transportation tried to hide the flawed construction methods, and uncovers a "series of near calamities affecting several major bridges in rapid succession across the state." The coverage triggered reforms in the national bridge code.
