It looks like they have made progress but too many details, financing and environmental concerns are slowing the process down. It certainly appears there will be no construction this year, given the info that is publically available.

Construction bids are not even in yet. They have pushed the deadline to November for submissions.

Lol! The future has arrived. It was a long time coming for you “old timers” here. :)

This one is a tough short given 9 year wait for payout. Tough long as well….
