Dry Conditions Allow For 85 Days Of Construction Work

For some people, the recent dry weather is actually a good thing. Construction along the Marsha Sharp Freeway hasn't stopped in 85 days thanks to the dry spell. That means crews have not had to delay projects because of rain or soggy ground.

"We've had lots of dirt to move, and lots of pipe to lay. We've put in a sewer system, and we had to dig deep into the earth for that, so dry weather had really helped," TxDOT Spokeswoman, Penny Mason said.

The Marsha Sharp Freeway is expected to be complete when we're all eight years older, in the year 2014.
