Thumbs down

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -

To the lack of progress in the stale­mate over the Route 272 bridge lead­ing into down­town North East, and more so the lack of com­mu­ni­ca­tion over the is­sues. Town of­fi­cials have been not­ing for weeks that they’ve been left in the dark about what is go­ing on with the State High­way Ad­min­is­tra­tion project, which was due to com­pleted in fall 2017, since its Delaware con­trac­tor left the job site three months ago. Work on the project, which aims to ex­pand and im­prove the bridge that runs over the Am­trak rail lines, reached new lev­els of con­cern late last week, when the con­trac­tor re­turned to the site and re­moved all of its equip­ment, which had been sit­ting idle for weeks. Del­e­gate Kevin Horn­berger said he had talked to SHA District En­gi­neer Greg Holsey and was told that the con­trac­tor and the state are still in talks to re­solve some “dis­crep­an­cies,” though he didn’t have de­tails on what those dis­crep­an­cies are. Mean­while, the town is left won­der­ing if the big­gest project they’ve dealt with in years will stretch on much longer than ini­tially thought. What gives, SHA?
