Prince William County has no plans to sue to stop the move of 6,400 defense workers to Alexandria's Mark Center.
A new Pentagon inspector general report finds "procedural and technical weaknesses" in the Army's traffic assessment surrounding its plans to move 6,400 Defense employees to a privately owned office complex in northern Virginia. Rep. Jim Moran, whose district includes the site, said the findings provide the underpinnings for local officials to sue the Pentagon to stop the move.
It rises high over Interstate 395 and will soon be home to 6,400 defense workers. But, now a report on the Mark Center's vulnerability that was accidentally posted on the internet by the Army Corps of Engineers is raising new concern.
A new report finds the Pentagon used faulty data when it decided to relocate 6,400 Department of Defense workers from Crystal City to Alexandria's Mark Center as part of the Base Realignment and Closure Act.
The Pentagon's inspector general says the Army failed to take into account current and projected rush hour traffic when it decided to relocate 6,400 defense workers to Alexandria.

Security designs for the new Mark Center have been posted online. In a major breach of security, Defense officials admit a document describing the bomb-proofing security plans for the new Defense building were published on a public website for the Army Corps of Engineers.
Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) sees a perfect storm in the future for federal employees and anyone else trying to commute through his district as a result of BRAC. He tells Federal News Radio he's at his wits' end trying to avert a traffic disaster.
The six-month continuing resolution Congress passed earlier this month was mostly about cuts, but it also included several hundred million dollars in new spending pushed through by the Maryland and Virginia congressional delegations. That money will pay to help solve some of the huge traffic problems this year's military personnel moves are expected to create around the DC area.
