Here is an update on the Silver Line Metro line currently being built in Washington DC and Virginia. The first phase of the project was delivered via design-build (DB) and has gone anything but smoothly. The project suffered from a lengthy delay that was the direct result of the contractor’s not completing the work satisfactorily. As a result they had a number of punch list items to resolve that pushed the completion date and official hand over to the public agency. This article provides details on the new schedule and also reveals that a joint-venture of contractors has already been selected.
