The Department of Justice recently investigated Sherman Dixie Concrete Industries, Hanson Building Products and Oldcastle Precast, Inc. for signing off on Tennessee roads projects that were not built to specifications. According to WSMV, walls and basins didn't have enough rebar, and some of the rebar wasn't put in the right place. The companies recently settled the case, and a Justice Department spokesperson said the investigation sends "a strong message to those who would seek to substitute inferior products in transportation-related projects."
