Houston highway crews are working to relieve congestion caused by Amazon’s broening infrastructure project.
The project is supposed to improve highway capacity and allow for better traffic flow on the Pan American Highway.
The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.
But, it is still taking several months to get things done.
The Houston Freeway Authority has been working to install and maintain the broening facilities at the Pan Am Highway in Texas.
The authority has already received $50 million in federal funding to install the broenings.
It is expected to receive $100 million in additional funding to get the project finished.
The Authority has also hired contractors to make the project a reality, according to an internal memo obtained by The Hill.
It also ordered all road crews to have a $1,000,000 safety training course, a $5,000 emergency response training course and a $25,000 disaster preparedness training course.
The memo said that if the project is not completed by January 2018, crews will be subject to a $50,000 penalty.
Houston Freeway is currently working on the Amazon Broening project.
The city expects to receive at least $1.5 million in new federal funding over the next three years.
