As we detailed two weeks ago, the Washmill underpass project, originally projected to cost $10 million, is an astonishing $8 million over budget. So far, $9,656,252 has been spent on the roadway, which now leads directly into a stone wall. The money needed to complete the road has yet to be allocated, but here’s who has been paid so far:

Maritime Testing---environmental monitoring and slate management, $37,364.
Servant Dunbrack---surveying, $12,205.
SNC Lavalin---design work, wetland alteration application, construction inspection, $202,140 spent, with another $129,710 budgeted, for a potential total of $331,850.
Brycon Construction---Phase 1 construction (detour road base, water retention, excavation), $3,199,637.
Dexter Construction---Phase 2 construction (detour road paving, bridges, storm water piping), $6,456,615, with another $1,672,975 still budgeted.

Phase 3 construction consists of building the actual Washmill Boulevard and associated sidewalks, lighting and landscaping. Supposedly, this will cost somewhere in the range of $5-7 million, but full costs won’t be known for several weeks.
