Oregon's Department of Transportation is spending $4 million to "study" ways to seismically retrofit a 3,200 foot-long viaduct that carries I-5 traffic across the town of Medford, in the southern part of the state. Hey ODOT! We're not talking about finding the Higgs bosun here, alright? We know that stretch of bridge is going to come down in a big quake, so how about simply putting that cash into reinforcing the sucker? Is that really too difficult for ya?
