All of the delays, overruns and costs associated with Bertha are climbing and it's officially time to start figuring out who's paying for all of it. According to a dispute review board, Washington State taxpayers are on the hook for a $20M change order Seattle Tunnel Partners requested in 2012. Washington says it has a $144M fund set up to pay for these sorts of things, though STP has requested a total of $210M in extra payment so far. This just keeps getting uglier. [SLOG, image by THC Co.]
