I'll parse your links for the 'message between the lines'. I can certainly use the practice.
You may also want to contact government oversight orgs but the one I went to said, in effect, 5000
people dying each year in the US unnecessarily is 'down in the noise.' AFAIK your group has not yet suffered casualties.
Supposedly almost no one can stand The Truth, but you guys are about to be confronted with it.
It's the truth about your state and federal governments and your fellow citizens.
And it's not like you asked for this revelation. It is being thrust upon you.
$500K for a bridge.
"For HS25 Designs: Inventory Rating = 45 tons and Operating Rating = 75 tons."
That's quite a bridge.
Why this bridge? Why not "panel bridges; pedestrian bridges, including modular or fixed length trusses; vehicle or pedestrian beam bridges; fixed modular bridges; vertical lift, bascule, retractable, or swing movable bridges; pipe bridges"
14' wide by 140' long by let's say 10' high = 700 cubic yards of material to be removed. To where? By 140 trips with 5 cubic yard dump trucks?
What is the proximate cause of these landslides?
How much for plpes to deliver propane, city water and sewage to the 250?
How much for a helipad?
Will the bridge, if built, be washed away by subsequent flooding? There are 5, 10, 20 and 100 year floods but the time intervals are getting shorter due to climate change.
if it's 'the bridge or nothing', see
I quote D. V. Lindley's Making Decisions, "Lord Kennet was forced to admit that the planning procedure is unsatisfactory and it is to be changed in the future so that inquiries into major projects can consider the options instead of merely a 'Yes' or 'No' to a particular scheme."
This drama was played out in England
same issues, bigger bucks, more people involved.
The 'utility function' for restored access of the 250 is decidedly different than the others not affected by the slide. The others just see their money gone with no benefit to them except the goodwill of the [politically unconnected?] 250.
This is pretty hard to solve.
Here's the other side of the coin
is another subject.
