How much of the new Bay Bridge span is faulty?
Eager to get an answer to that question, investigators will scrutinize every single part supplied by Dyson Corp, Bay Bridge spokesman Andrew Gordon told KQED's Tara Siler.
The Ohio company made threaded rods (also called bolts) that snapped when tightened last month, and also supplied many other components for the project. But Gordon could not say how many or how crucial are the parts that Dyson supplied.
The Toll Bridge Program Oversight Committee "has ordered a thorough review, which includes looking at all possible options for fixing the situation in regard to the bolts that broke, how the shear key that those bolts were supposed to hold down can be secured, thoroughly looking at the other rods that are out there that were provided by Dyson, and looking at any and all other components and pieces that were also provided by Dyson," Gordon said.
The list of those parts "is being compiled," he said.
