ARLINGTON, Va. — Arlington County dubs itself a “world-class” community. Such hubris has led to a $1.1 million bus stop.

The so-called “Super Stop” was to be the first of 24 along the Columbia Pike corridor, but a torrent of bad publicity halted the $24 million program as local officials retrenched.

“Total expenditures, including local funds, are currently being examined,” Arlington spokesman Eric Balliet told on Tuesday. An independent auditor has been called in to review the program.
