For those following the issue of fixing the Highway 90 Bridge before improper stresses weaken the structure will remember that on May 30th Interstate Highway Construction (IHC) was do to arrive and jack-up the girders and reposition the "Bearing Plates" (Load Bearing Plates, see the article link below for a rather technical explanation); nobody came but IHC promised work would begin the 12th of June, didn't happen but promised "maybe" the last week of June, nobody showed, then promised the 5th of July, nobody showed and now promises the 17th of July; so the NM DOT Project Manager says to them, via letter, and I paraphrase, "finish the jacking job by July 31st or we will jack you for $4,000 per day in fines".

The $4,000 per day is calculated based on the $7.4 million dollar cost to demolish and rebuild the bridge.

IHC has been back fixing a number of problems such as the road surface and cracks in the concrete everywhere in the columns, column caps and barrier walls (between the roadway and sidewalks). Has IHC gone broke? Do they have the means to do the job? Nobody seems to know.

Not sure who is your Peter and who is Paul. As builders of the bridge IHC is responsible for paying the costs for fixing their screw-ups so the tax payor doesn't have to pay again. Why all the promises and never showing up?
