     King County officials switched contractors for the Kingdome
repair project yesterday.  Seattle's Pacific Components Inc. is
being replaced by MN-based M.A. Mortenson Co., which already
leads $246.4M in county contracts.  Pacific Components President
Don Mar was "disappointed" to lose the $32.5M project but said
his company did not have the "bonding capacity" for a project of
this size.  Kingdome repair project spokesperson Kathy Bunnell
Johnson said the general contractor was switched because of a
"change in the scope of the work and an earlier deadline."  Bids
were also opened yesterday for the roof resurfacing portion of
the project and four companies are being considered in the next
few days (George Foster, SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 9/15).
