Conducted on behalf of the Transportation Performance Audit Board (TPAB), this study reviews the chain of events, starting with the initial Hood Canal Bridge replacement project, which led to the decision to construct a graving dock at the Port Angeles site and to the abandonment of that construction. The review addresses legislative and TPAB member questions concerning the Hood Canal Bridge project and the graving dock. The study also assesses WSDOT procedures on unexpected situations and how they were applied in the decision to stop work at the site.
