Mistakes on 520 bridge will be costly

Privatized construction might have prevented this

If there was ever a good example of why more state government work should be outsourced and privatized, it’s the millions of dollars the state will cost us for having done their own defective engineering in the design of the 520 bridge [“State admits costly mistakes on 520 bridge,” page one, Feb. 27].

In the private sector of the construction industry, if you make a mistake, you assume the consequences and pay for it. This causes private-sector contractors to be very careful in making their proposals and could have avoided this taxpayer bailout of governmental error.

–Bob Dorse, Seattle
