Minnesota has a mismatch between the entities that fund the construction of light rail transit projects and the entities responsible for constructing them. We also found that the Metropolitan Council obligated itself to spend money it did not have, added or changed substantial work after the project was bid, and was not fully transparent about the project’s increasing costs and delays.
The Office of the Legislative Auditor is issuing multiple reports on the Southwest Light Rail Transit project.
