ODOT Strikes Again: 7 Years Late & $230 Million Over Budget!

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.
