Correction: Lawmakers call for US steel in bridge

Keywords: Tags  Correction, Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Metropolitan Transportation Authority, MTA, Diane Savino, Nicole Malliotakis, Thomas Prendergast, United Steelworkers union USW

Due to a reporting error, a story in the June 24 edition incorrectly stated that Chinese-produced steel anchor rods failed after being installed in the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. United Steelworkers union president Leo Gerard did not specifically refer to any current problems with construction of the bridge, but did note the project’s "broad" history of "being behind schedule, plagued with cost overruns and causing California commuters to lack confidence in a bridge that was primarily produced and fabricated in China," a USW spokesman said.
