Spending Dollars To Save Pennies

From the Seattle Times: "Bus-tunnel error years ago is costly in shutdown today."

Apparently, in order to save $1.5 million fifteen years ago, the planners of the Seattle bus tunnels made a decision. Plans for putting light-rail trains in te tunnels have long been extant; in fact the rails are already in place. But they cut a corner to save $1.5 million, and it now that corner-cutting will cost them $45 million and use of the tunnel for two years.
