Description

WTVD-TV wanted to know why there were so many accidents on a particular stretch of I-40 in Durham County. Every day, one hundred thousand vehicles travel through the 11 mile construction zone, the site of more than 11 hundred wrecks over the past three years. After submitting a Freedom of Information Act request, documents obtained revealed design mistakes, mismanagement, and other problems that cost taxpayers millions of dollars.
