    Nederland Avenue project finished, with excess funds going to future road projects

    The Nederland Avenue project is nearing completion, and city officials say the project is hundreds of thousands of dollars under budget.

    The excess funds will be used to fund projects in 2019 says Nederland City Manager Chris Duque.

    "When you do a street project where you tear up so much of an older road there's always the unknown so I think we were fortunate to come under budget," says Duque.

    Duque says the $300k of excess money would make up roughly 33% of next years budget.

    "We really have been working on the past few years about having a plan," says Duque. "We're going to do this in anticipation for next year we're going to do the second phase and finish it."

    KFDM/Fox 4's Chris Mullooly has the full report.
