The next time the Oregon Dept. of Transportation (ODOT) whines for your tax dollars to repair our “crumbling infrastructure” ask what they could have done with the $365 million they plowed into a 10 mile stretch of Route 20 that connects Pioneer Mountain to Eddyville.
Next ask how they managed to toss $162 million to a contractor before firing him for doing lousy work on this stretch of pavement one Oregon Transportation Commissioner labeled a “low usage road…”
We think “low usage” applies to ODOT’s collective brain. But we do hope they treasure our coveted Golden Fleece Award for government waste.
