CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A deal to bring new power lines to the Cape could soon be put on hold.
The Community Redevelopment Agency is talking about a possible change to a deal between the city and LCEC over power lines that are set to be put underground.
The plan calls for them to go down Southeast 46Th lane, but the CRA says underground water pipes could mean construction delays and raise the $4.5 million price tag for the project.
LCEC insists everyone knew the problems existed when the deal was agreed to in April. Its not the first time the two sides have disagreed on a plan. The project has been debated for 10 years now.
City council will have a final say on whether the current deal will have to be scrapped.
