Project funding update:  Estimated funding shortfall at this time is $5.1 million.  Potential cost reductions and additional funding have been identified for $3.9 million leaving total shortfall at $1.2 million

Administrative functions related to the phasing of this project are still ongoing.  An exact advertisement date cannot be firmly established until final secondary six year plan funding allocations are in place. At present projected allocations, it is expected the project will be advertised in late 2008 or early 2009.
