What we found was that Bechtel/Parsons Brinckerhoff, the mega-corporate joint venture running the project, committed a series of poor decisions, design mistakes, and imprecise research findings that led to about two-thirds of the overruns. The company's political connections, lobbyists, and cross pollination with state and federal officials go a long way toward explaining why the company was never held accountable."
