obfuscating the truth

County Preparing To Allocate $4.2 Million for Silver Spring Transit Center Lawsuit Costs - Bethesda Beat - Bethesda, MD

"How far can 10+ million pages go in obfuscating the truth, particularly to the public? probably pretty far. The simple truth can be found in the report that the county commissioned from independent structural engineering firm KCE and the county's own inspector general report. 1. The county took on the role of construction manager itself. 2. a county building inspector identified concerns about the design during permit stage, before construction began; but, these concerns were unheeded. 3. cracks were identified early on during construction; but, these, and other problems, were not fully vetted until the KCE investigation and report, when construction was almost complete."

In 2014 Montgomery County councilman Phil Andrews called the Silver Spring Transit Center a "monumental debacle"Silver Spring Transit Center to cost taxpayers even more money | WJLA

He was right on the money! The Paul S. Sarbanes Silver Spring Transit Center is a "monumental debacle"

Montgomery County and WMATA are just as responsible for the Silver Spring Transit Center "monumental debacle", perhaps even more so, as Parsons Brinckerhoff, Foulger Pratt and its subcontractors, and the Balter Company.
