There's another delay for Albany's Multi Modal Transportation Center and this one could kill the project.

The Federal Transit Administration required a full archeological study at the site of the new bus station and transportation hub after Indian artifacts were found there.

That study would cost the city almost $600,000.

City leaders are trying to decide if the project is worth it.

Tuesday, they took no action on a recommendation to grant a contract to conduct the study.

Now, the project is in danger.

"If this archeological thing doesn't pass, there's a very real likelihood that this will be the end of the project," said Albany's Assistant City Manager Wes Smith.

Commissioners will take up the issue again at their next meeting next Tuesday night.
