Shovel un-ready: biggest stimulus projects deliver less than 20 percent of promised jobs in Palm Beach Countyby George Bennett | July 24th, 2011
Some of the projects have been delayed and might bring employment in the future.
But a completed Tequesta Bridge replacement project, which wrapped up in December after getting $2.7 million in stimulus money, delivered only 22 jobs rather than the 123 projected. Similarly, a Forest Hill Boulevard resurfacing in Wellington that got $5.2 million in stimulus money generated only 32 of 121 projected jobs. And a just-completed Military Trail resurfacing south of Lake Worth Road got $6.9 million from the stimulus for 15 full-time jobs rather than the 121 envisioned.
