Overbudget Already

The Post has a profile of Allen Lew, the man who’s overseeing stadium construction for the District.

I link to it, only because it’s the first public admission I’ve seen that admits that the stadium’s already overbudget. RFK renovations were initially supposed to cost $13 million, but that’s already shot up to $18.5 million because of ‘overtime’ costs. $5.5 million in overtime? Sign me up! (Actually, I thought Bush was supposed to have killed overtime as we know it ;) )

42% over budget and we’re barely two months into the process. Great.
