Description

This investigation of the Bay Bridge centered on allegations made by 20 welders who worked on the construction of a new Bay Bridge span -- the largest ongoing transportation public works project in the country. The workers alleged they were pressured to conceal substandard welds in the bridge's foundations and that they witnessed the contractor concealing injuries from health and safety regulators. The investigation continues, with pending results of the attorney general investigation, lawsuits and the state audit.
