If it takes the contractor as long to do that part of the road as it did to do it from Copperas Cove to the Main Gate it will be 2017 before it is completed. A bunch of us will never see it completed all the way to Belton. We will be dead and gone.

You're right. The part from Ft. Hood all the way to I-35 will take them 8-10 years. We may never see either the South or North By-passes completed.
The first part (from Cove to Ft Hood) was due for completion in Oct, 2007. Now they are saying "only" three more weeks.
Wish I could have missed deadlines by 22 months when I had a project to complete.

It was supposed to be completed in 2008 not 2007. What took so long was the rain of 2007.

I'll tell you what took so long. It was a government fundrd project. A plan to offset that could be businesses that wish to avoid certain taxes can offer to sponsor a section of roadway. When our roads become privately funded, lets see just long it takes to get projects completed.
