Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck appeared today on KTCK-AM 1310, and told host Norm Hitzges he's worried that the Texas Department of Transportation is running behind. He said ground was supposed to break two months ago on Interstate 30 expansion. Although some of the work will take at least three years, the contractor has financial incentives to complete the new Baird Farm Road extension to the new stadium by 2009.
"Now I'm getting very nervous whether everything can be finished by the time they play their first game," Cluck said.
As luck would have it, Honkin' Mad ran into TxDot spokeswoman Jodi Hodges a few minutes later. Hodges said the projects "are having some right-of-way and utility issues," but the agency is confident they can still be built on time.
