Abstract

This audit addressed 15 questions in four areas: (1) WSDOT's highway capital construction and maintenance programs; (2) the delivery of highway projects and services; (3) the impact of the state prevailing wage law and environmental regulations on highway program costs; and (4) the adequacy of information provided by WSDOT on its rail program, focusing on the Grain Train Project and on passenger rail.  The audit produced 26 recommendations, with target savings of $12 million per biennium.  Download Appendix 2 as a separate file.
