(never)ending construction

Biking home after work on Friday, the sidewalk on the east side of the bridge was open, and the construction had moved over to the west side.

Only 2 years behind schedule.

It still needs some cosmetic stuff (the walls seem to just be cement or whatever, no decorative brick; and the sidewalks are nice cement immediately adjacent to the road but just asphalt adjacent to the wall) but it's functional -- and the new lampposts are really nice.

So do we think the final product will be ONLY 2 years behind schedule (thus being completed Fall 2016) or more? I don't remember how far behind schedule the East Side construction began. (The schedule was that everything would begin June 2012 and then East Side construction would be Aug 2012 - May 2013, West Side: ​June 2013 - March 2014, Center: ​March - April 2014, Completion: Fall 2014.)

Edit: One of my co-workers is investigating and apparently the new end date is Spring 2016 (citation).
