CMU construction delays

What do you get when you tear up 40-year old flooring? Construction delays, headaches and budget overruns.

Central Michigan University is facing all of these things as students return from their summer break. About 1,800 students in the southeast residence complex will be without a residential restaurant until Sept. 15 as construction crews rush to complete a massive overhaul of the dining commons.
