But according to a report in the Washington Post this week, the endeavor is grossly over budget and at this rate may never be built as expected.Announced in 2004 after the creation of DHS, the project was billed as the capital region’s largest planned construction project since the Department of Defense headquarters were established at the Pentagon decades earlier.
