“The bottom line is work is progressing and change orders are ongoing,” Dee Anne Heath, the Mobility Authority’s director of external affairs and media relations, told the newspaper. “We have no reason to be negative or concerned.”
Connecticut-based Lane Construction, which has been a subcontractor on the MoPac project since early 2014, will complete the rest of the work.
“We’re really happy with what we’re seeing from Lane,” Mobility Authority deputy executive director Jeff Dailey told the newspaper. “They’re working on a tough section from Enfield [Road] to [RM] 2222.”
CH2M said the change is not expected to affect the timeline of the new opening date for the entire project, which has been pushed back to June.
According to the newspaper, during a Mobility Authority board meeting on Jan. 25, CH2M Project Director Craig Martell said, “We’re pretty confident in hitting mid-June.”
