Silver Spring Transit Center Update

During a virtual town hall meeting on July 9, Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett fielded a question about the Silver Spring Transit Center.

Michael from Bethesda-Chevy Chase asked: “Is it true that additional county funds are to be spent on the troubled Silver Spring transit center? If so why?”

Leggett’s response: “Thank you for your question. The contractors working on the Silver Spring Transit Center have been working with Montgomery County and WMATA to develop a remediation plan to correct the defects at the Transit Center. It is our expectation that the contractors will pay for any work to correct defects and problems. Permits to do the remediation were issued yesterday, and work will commence within the next week.”
