More Media Reports on the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project

More media coverage on the Dulles Rail extension... This time from the Sun Gazette, with a headline that reads "Feds Rap Budget, Timetable for Dulles Rail Plan."

The Sun Gazette reports that "Federal Transit Administration officials should provide "vigilant oversight" of the Dulles Corridor Metrorail Project because it is significantly behind schedule and over- budget, according to a report released July 27 by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Office of the Inspector General. Costs for the project's first phase have jumped about $1 billion from the $1.52 billion estimated in December 2004, and that phase's completion date has been pushed back four years to 2013, the report read."
