They said the project is about nine months ahead of schedule. This means that the majority of the construction work has been completed.

“It used to take me about eight minutes to get to work, but now it takes me about 15-20 minutes,” William Homes-Henry told 22News. “I live close to the highway, but it still takes a little while.”
