Rising Building Costs Putting Durham Projects on Hold

Posted October 4, 2007

— Escalating construction costs have put some downtown Durham projects on hold.

The renovations were to be paid for by bonds, but original costs projections are now over budget.

City Manager Patrick Baker said other projects might also be affected.
