The rebuilding of highways in Los Angeles, Calif. after the 1994 Northridge earthquake provides valuable lessons for the post-Katrina/Rita reconstruction effort. Foremost among those lessons is that competitive bidding and enforcement of labor standards such as the Davis-Bacon prevailing wage law can help ensure that work is done expeditiously, safely, cost effectively, and with maximum benefit to the local population. The Northridge experience disproves claims that Davis-Bacon generates excessive paperwork, costs, or delays.

The damage and deaths from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita dwarf the $44 billion in economic damage and the 51 lives lost in Southern California’s Northridge earthquake. Nonetheless, the January 17, 1994 earthquake centered in the heart of Los Angeles injured over 9,000 people, left about 22,000 people in shelters and tents, severely damaged or destroyed 54,000 buildings, left 5,000 homes without water, and left 35,000 homes without gas. The quake also destroyed freeway bridges on four main arteries of the Southern California freeway system, including collapsed bridges on the Santa Monica Freeway, the most heavily used highway in the world. 1

“The collapse of the Santa Monica, so close to downtown, was like a wallop straight to Los Angeles’ heart.”2 Because it carries as many as 341,000 vehicles per day,3 the shutdown of the Santa Monica Freeway (also called I-10) cost California an estimated $1 million per day in lost wages, added fuel cost, and depressed business activity. 4 In order to get L.A.’s transportation system up and running again as quickly as possible, Governor Pete Wilson immediately declared a state of emergency and suspended a variety of regulations to expedite the rebuilding process. 5 Governor Wilson explained his actions to a U.S. Senate committee soon after Hurricane Katrina:
