The lawsuit filed in Sussex County Superior Court claims breach of contract by Florida-based Figg Bridge Engineers and its subcontractor, Atlanta-based MACTEC Engineering related to alleged geotechnical engineering errors. It also accuses MACTEC of providing inaccurate and incomplete information to DelDOT on the Indian River Inlet Bridge.
This lawsuit and the story of the project has been brewing for quite some time, and I just found a post I wrote about it three years ago! To be fair to MACTEC, I will be publishing their press release responding to the announcement of the lawsuit in the next post. [Source: Bloomberg]
