Report on the Tren Urbano Rail Transit Project
This audit reviews the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico Highway and Transportation Authority’s (HTA) schedule, cost estimate, financial capacity, and outstanding construction quality problems for completing the Tren Urbano Rail Transit Project in San Juan, PR. The completed report was issued to the Secretary and Congress on March 5. We found that:
We recommended that FTA neither amend the project's full funding grant agreement nor accept or approve the updated finance plan until it is satisfied that HTA has (1) revised the project's master schedule to reflect attainable project milestones, (2) submitted a cost estimate consistent with a supportable project completion date, and (3) established and adhered to a timetable to resolve significant construction quality problems.
