STATE PROJECTS FOR OLYMPICS LACKING FUNDS
Published January 6, 1995
In Atlanta, officials are blaming the "flurry of Olympic- related building and a nationwide increase in construction costs," for the shortage of funds for two state projects tied to the Olympics. The $106.5M Olympic Village at Georgia Tech, which is currently under construction, will require another $5M for completion and bids for a proposed $27.4M pedestrian plaza and parking deck at the Georgia World Congress Center have reportedly come in $8M more than expected (Ken Foskett, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 1/6).
