This Dec. 12, 2013 photo released by Portal da Copa, shows an aerial view of a project, known locally as "The Big Ditch," to reroute one of three main traffic arteries in Cuiaba, Brazil. It passes within a few hundred yards of the new stadium, and will hinder traffic getting to the stadium, not help it. Small business owners in the area say they were told two years ago when work began that it would be completed in a few months. They say they have lost money since then, and now can’t get a straight answer as to when the work will be finished; certainly not in time for the World Cup. (AP Photo/Portal da Copa, Jose Medeiros)

This Feb. 3, 2014 photo shows an unfinished monorail line, it construction delayed, that was slated to improve mobility during the World Cup, in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The World Cup was to have served as a stepping-out party announcing Brazil’s arrival on the global stage. Instead the construction delays have become an embarrassment for many, stoking public anger over poor public services, the high cost of living and corruption scandals. Many Brazilians now say that even if their beloved soccer team wins the World Cup on July 13, the country will have already lost. (AP Photo/Andre Penner)
