A massive operation is underway at the site of the deadly bridge collapse in Baltimore. Crews are undertaking painstaking tasks, removing sharp twisted steel and concrete debris from the port. No one knows yet how long it will take to clean up the wreckage and open the channel. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg will play a key role in all of this and joined Geoff Bennett to discuss more. - Aired on 04/02/2024.

It's way too early to know if they'll use the original plans or decide to start over with more efficient ideas. I would bet that Pete Buttigieg would promote the latter. It's early days and they're focusing on the massive cleanup and getting the funding.
