November 27, 2019 Reply Matt Bosman Just because the city wasnt notified doesn't mean an engineer didn't approve the change. I find it hard to believe this was a deck failure but it's a strange design so who knows. November 27, 2019 Reply ryanburbridge These people sound stupid talking about topics they are truly clueless about. Skip to 2:16 and save yourself 3 minutes. They literally say “we don’t know”. Lol it’s obvious you don’t know! And i hate the fact that they act like they have a smoking gun with the government not being notified. Lol good ol nanny government would have saved us… get real the government IS ALWAYS THE PROBLEM! 🤦🏼♂️ November 27, 2019 Reply Dave Chappelle Somewhere out there is an RFI between the GC and the design team. And in that RFI for this change was approved by the EOR/Engineer of Record.It sounds like the change was never updated in the structural drawings and the drawings were IFC/Issued for Construction. The EOR had better have their Proffesional Liability Insurance paid up!!! November 27, 2019 Reply Russell Grosvenor Do you really think anyone at city hall knows if the deck product change made a difference. This is journalism sensationalism at its worst. November 27, 2019 Reply robt555 You would be amazed at how common this practice is. All these projects are approved for the lowest bidder. Everyone likes to pretend it doesn't come down to price but that's BS. Having owned a company where I worked exclusively on government contracts for almost 10 years, in every single instance, without exception, the lowest bidder got the contract. Knowing that, All contractors put unbelievably low prices in as their final bid knowing that they are going to cut back on the specifications during the construction process and make their profits that way. This happens every single day with buildings and more so with Bridges. November 27, 2019 Reply Jay D. Wells Look again, there are several decks listed on different parts of the plans. November 27, 2019 Reply 2Fine2Be Humble This is so stupid. Anyone who has ever done construction in NOLA has heard the phrase from the inspectors: They don’t pay us much. If you take care of us we will take care of you. No envelope and no pass inspection. Been that way forever. Don’t act surprised when something fails. November 28, 2019 Reply charles john Contractors trying to to save a buck. Cutting corners. Under maning jobs. This is the face of Construction today.

The victims and their families need to know what actually happened. November 30, 2019 Reply tuscanyjc How come you guys blocked the comment from the one guy (who is an engineer and offered to show you the metal deck is OK to use and it was the spans that failed) knobs!
