Tom Leppert, the Trinity River Remix
Someone not named "Jim Schutze" just posted the above video to YouTube -- just in time for the Friends of Unfair Park who've not yet read Schutze's very related column in this week's Observer. An excerpt, to whet your appetite:
At the end of last week, I had a detailed and helpful conversation with Kevin Craig, who is manager of the Trinity River project for the Corps of Engineers. I wanted to know more about what was wrong and why it took the Corps so long to reveal results of tests it did back in December 2007.
The answer was that the original test results sort of went out the window last year when a contractor began drilling 54-inch diameter shafts 90 feet into the soil for the Margaret Hunt-Hill "signature" bridge. The drillers hit sand.
