Gage Construction 60 days Behind Schedule

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash.- Backups continue as construction moves along on Gage Boulevard in Richland.

Workers are still paving the road to expand it to four lanes, but construction's been going on for months, which has people wondering when it will end.

Buried utilities that weren't expected have forced delays on the project.

"We found a lot of stuff that surprised us and so we have like 60 days of delays and unfortunately it couldn't be avoided and you know it makes it frustrating but there's really no way around it," said Jack Arnold with Richland Public Utilities. 

The new road is set to open a month from Thursday.

It'll be four lanes all the way from the mall to the intersection with Keene.
