Construction slowdown at Hanford worries insiders

RICHLAND, Wash. (AP) - Amid blowing dust and miles of sagebrush, giant
construction cranes sat still one recent day at the Hanford nuclear
reservation - silent sentinels over the government's largest
construction project.

The goal is to build a plant to treat highly radioactive waste left from
Cold War-era nuclear weapons production. Achievement is a long way off. 

The U.S. Department of Energy, which manages the south-central
Washington site, has encountered an endless stream of problems with the
project since the contract was first awarded in 1998. Billions of
taxpayer dollars already have been spent, yet the project is only about
30 percent complete.
