more on the Silver Sprint Transit Center

Metro commissioned an evaluation report for the SSTC that is on Montgomery County's website. The final paragraph of the report reads: "Based upon the extensive design and construction deficiencies, the SSTC will experience significantly higher costs for maintenance, future repairs and loss of use during repair periods compared to a properly designed and constructed facility. As-built, the SSTC is not expected to achieve its 50 year design service life without significant repairs to improve the durability of the structure." Who can blame Metro for wanting to walk away from the project?
