Bay Bridge Project Faces Delays

The $6.3 billion Bay Bridge reconstruction project could miss its 2013 deadline for completion because of manufacturing and design problems. The Chron reports that major prefabricated parts from China have been delayed by a year because of welding problems. The Chinese company, ZPMC, also makes the huge cranes at the Port of Oakland, and has had manufacturing problems before. In fact, the port has grappled with ZPMC over bent crane legs and foundations.
