Patch Reports: Unauthorized Silver Line Changes Called 'Alarming'

According to the Ashburn Patch, the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority is under fire again for its oversight of Metro's Silver Line extension, prompting a sharp letter from the U.S. Department of Transportation about "alarming" changes made by a subcontractor.
However, Patch reports that "representatives at MWAA assert that safety is a top priority, all concerns will be addressed and, at the moment, the project remains on track."
As contractors continue work on the project's first phase to Reston – phase two will carry the Silver Line out to Dulles Airport and Ashburn – a representative for MWAA said delays could push back completion of construction, which would mean no bonuses for finishing on time. However, representatives this week said the project remains on track for late summer delivery, despite a WTOP report this week that estimated Oct. 1 for a January 2014 delivery.
