The construction company hired to renovate Wrightsville Avenue has gone bankrupt.

The Department of Transportation hired Main Line Construction to improve Wrightsville Avenue near Independence. The company was in the middle of creating two new turn lanes to help relieve congestion.

But Tuesday the company filed for bankruptcy. Residents said they are worried about the unfinished work. Concerned resident Carolyn Robertson said, “Now we’re left with the project two-thirds of the way done, I guess. It’s just a very bad hazard here in our area.”

DOT engineers have surveyed the construction to make sure there are no maintenance or safety issues.

While the bankruptcy will push back the completion date, the DOT still plans to complete the project.
