The project cost is now roughly $1.55 million.</p> <div class="premium-message"><p> The full text of this article is only available to online subscribers.</p> <p> Are you an online subscriber? <a href="/user">Click to login</a>. <a href="/onlinesubscribe"> </a></p> <p> <a href="/onlinesubscribe">Click here</a> to learn more about our online subscription options.
