Completion of the $101 million Silver Spring transit hub in Montgomery County, Md., will be delayed because of a dispute over concrete placement on the first, second and third floors. "Specifications for the project called for there to be 10 inches of concrete. The analysis that has been done has shown that for significant portions of the second floor and the third floor, there's only eight and a half inches," according to Roger Berliner, president of the Montgomery County Council. But, Bryant Foulger, a principal with general contractor Foulger-Pratt, doesn't believe there is a structural issue based on tests they did.
