Incompetence at the North Carolina Department of Transportation

It turns out Wendi Johnson, a Wilson-based construction engineer for the state Department of Transportation, was right all along: The central office experts skimped on their design for a new interstate highway for Eastern North Carolina.

So the state will spend $13 million to repair damage caused by their mistake and to implement a recommendation Johnson made six years ago, a DOT administrator said Thursday.

A mistake it would have cost $2.8 million to avoid 18 months ago. Oh, and they've already spend $600,000 fixing the worst parts of this stupidity.

And people wonder why I don't trust government--any government--with my health care?
