Van Wyck project taking a really long time
From CBS 2:
The State Department of Transportation is spending nearly $300 million to replace six decaying overpasses and rehab four more, while widening the Van Wyck to improve traffic flow. The state admits one of the projects – going on since 2010 – is now 21 months behind schedule and more than $9 million over budget.
Department of Transportation spokesman Gary Holmes told CBS2 that the reason it’s taking so long is because it’s a complicated project that’s broken into three contracts.
