Construction to resume today on DeCubellis Road extension


DeCubellis Road work should restart today

Drivers on DeCubellis Road should finally start to see construction start up again.

In January, Pasco got the go-ahead to fire Kearney Construction Co. from the $2.4-million project to extend DeCubellis from Town Center Road to Ridge Road. The project was originally supposed to be finished in October. Pasco needed a bankruptcy judge's permission to take Kearney off the DeCubellis job, which was considered an asset under the bankruptcy proceedings.

But since then, Pasco has run into trouble getting the firm's surety company, Traveler's Insurance, to put a new contractor on the job. County attorney Jeff Steinsnyder said Tuesday afternoon that his office had finally received a signed copy of the takeover agreement, and Pepper Contracting is supposed to be on the job today.

Crews should finish within 55 days, said officials.
