PLYMOUTH â Even a 15-day strike hasn't slowed the project on Pioneer Drive.
Reporting to the Marshall County Commissioners DLZ project engineer Ron Wireman said that even dealing with a strike that shut down work for more than two weeks likely won't push the completion date for the road back any further than the second week of September. The contractors on the project will be allowed a 15-day extension for the days lost to the work stoppage which sets the official required completion date back to Oct. 17.
