ATLANTA (AP) -- Dozens of problems have been identified in a stinging audit of the Atlanta Streetcar.
Documents obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution show the troubled $99 million project is dealing with a shortage in staff, lax safety and security procedures, accidents that weren't properly investigated or reported and defective equipment that disrupted service.
More than a year later, the newspaper reports the city has resolved less than one-third of those flaws for a project envisioned as a centerpiece of the city's revitalization.
The February 2016 state audit found 66 problems. The city has completely resolved only 20 of them.
It's unclear how soon officials will complete the rest of the items. The Georgia Department of Transportation says the city is on track to finish the list by June.
