Central Artery/Ted Williams Tunnel Project Highlights Need for Effective Federal Oversight
On May 3, 2000, at a hearing before the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, U.S. Senate, we provided testimony on the Central Artery/Ted Williams Tunnel Project in Boston, Massachusetts. Our testimony addressed the recent cost increases on the Central Artery Project and the status of efforts to recover past overpayments on the Central Artery’s Owner Controlled Insurance Program (OCIP). Our testimony was based on our February 10, 2000 report on the Current Costs and Funding of the Central Artery/Ted Williams Tunnel Project (Report Number TR-2000-050) and our May 24, 1999 report on Overpayments of Premiums for the Central Artery Project’s Owner Controlled Insurance Program (Report Number TR-1999-104). A copy of our written statement is attached.
