More Questions than Answers for the Silver Spring Transit Center

Bill Turque catches up on the progress of the "$120 million concrete albatross" that is the Silver Spring Transit Center.

Bill Turque sums up the current status of the delayed Silver Spring Transit Center project: "In May, county officials said the goal was to deliver a finished building to Metro by the end of the year. But with repairs still in progress, there remains no opening date for the center, which broke ground six years ago this fall. It probably will be sometime this winter before the building is conveyed to Metro, which then has 60 days to decide whether to accept it."

The article goes on to detail the recent contributions of Allyn Kilsheimer, "the engineering consultant hired by the county to complete repairs to the building."
