Here’s the Antelope Valley deal

by Deena Winter

Antelope Valley channel in 2010.

If you’re interested in reading the actual document that all the contractors and subcontractors involved in the Antelope Valley bridge problems agreed to, here it is: Agreement in Principle AV Bridge Spalling w Constructors Inc Signature.

The mayor announced this agreement laying out how the $250,000 worth of repairs to bridges will be paid for. Beutler ordered the trails under N, O, P and Q streets closed in January after an 18-inch-long piece of the bridge fell off the bottom of the O Street bridge, and cracks were found in the bottom of other bridges.

All the contractors and subcontractors agreed pay for the repairs and not sue each other. The city’s New York-based consultant, Parsons Brinckerhoff, designed and inspected all but one of the Antelope Valley bridges.

    dear “breaking news”
    who inspected the bridges that have been unuseable , in the 250,000 repair agreement.?
    who will make the necessary sign off on the repairs??
    I am greatful these people do not repair and inspect my airplane.
    Mayor B should be the First to walk under the bridges and personally inspect the work.
    sarcastically submitted.

    PMG, do you think we could trust the mayor to inspect the bridges? I don’t!!

    How about this, according to someone in the know, this comes from high sources, “Lincoln is one of the most corrupt cities in the country”. Wish I could tell you who said that, but I promised.

    Watchdogs just learned this weekend that Omaha is worse. Lincoln has a good ol’boy system.
    I don’t know of any corruption, just leaders in the former and a sleeping voting population.
    If anyone knows of specific corruption, let us know.
