I-526 project put on hold due to contract issues


Contract issues seem to have put the completion date for the interstate 526 project on hold.

Charleston Councilman Elliott Summey has been in talks with the state infrastructure bank and department of transportation over the last two months.

Summey says the groups didn’t live up to their end of a 420 million dollar bargain.

If they fail to pay by September 13, Summey says legal action will take place.RELATED: Deadline Looms for I-526 Completion ProjectRELATED: Voters Will See Half Cent Sales Tax Referendum on November Ballot
