MOPAC Northbound Lanes Opening Today!
At long last, northbound lanes of the Mopac Project are opening today from downtown to 2222. Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority Mike Heilegenstein says while there were weather and other unexpected delays, one big factor was the contractor CH2M Hill announcing they were getting out of the roadbuilding business which sent more than half of their labor force packing.
CH2M Hill recently settled with the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority over cost overruns. The southbound lanes are expected to open next month.
