Grand River Station: Behind But Nearly Open
It's been a long time coming. A little longer than originally thought, actually. The Grand River Station Transit Center in downtown La Crosse. A grand opening for the center this week. About ten months after it was supposed to be open. City Public Works director Dale Hexom says original plans needed additional details worked out before contractors could even begin the project, which led to some delays. But complications with financing also pushed the completion of the transit center back. Hexom says the building will come in close to its original 23 million dollar budget. But, with bills for the project still coming in, at this point he's not sure how close.
