Mercy Joplin Construction Update

Work is moving right along on the construction of the new Mercy Hospital at I-44 and Hearnes Blvd. Senior Project Manager, Dan O'Connor gives News Talk KZRG an update on the roadwork at 50th Street:

"We had a delay due to the weather; we've had a little over 5 inches of rain over the past 10 days and the soil is completely saturated, so we've delayed the opening of that area until September 16th."

Despite the delay, O'Connor says everything inside the campus is actually ahead of schedule and should open by March 2015.
