This investigation examines why road projects in Omaha take so long to get completed. Although the slow pace has been attributed to cold winters and wet springs that make for a short construction season, the newspaper found a number of man-made issues as the cause: Contractors take on numerous projects instead of assigning crews to finish a few jobs as quickly as possible; utility line work is often poorly coordinated; and city government rarely gives contractors deadline dates for completions, incentives to hurry or penalties for being late.
