CTRMA and Motorists Face MoPac Delay

KTBC-TV News (Austin) reports, “Part of the MoPac Expressway was supposed to open this weekend but there has been another delay. The slow pace of construction has added to the frustration for those who use MoPac and for officials with the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority.” CTRMA now expects an August opening of the RM 2222 to Parmer lane segment, but a firm date has not been set.

In its report, KEYE-TV News notes, “A decrease in workers is the reason for the latest MoPac delay,” and at CTRMA’s July 27 board meeting, “the contractor got a reminder to get everything done or pay the consequences.”
