5 Inch Error Costs Contractor $20,000 to $25,000

A 5 inch surveying error has resulted in a misalignment of a concrete ramp being built in Seattle by PCL Construction.  

After assessing its options, PCL decided to tear down 160 feet of concrete and start over, a mistake that will cost the company between $20,000 and $25,000.  The ramp is part of work being performed on the South Spokane Street Viaduct.
