KYLE — Walmart’s planned $12 million, 156,000 square-foot facility in Kyle is expected to be finished by January, according to the construction project manager.
Work on the project began in May and will take about nine months to complete, said Bobby Ferguson of Temple-based Emerson Construction Co. Inc. An updated project timeline presented to the city indicates the project should be done by Jan. 7.
“We want to make sure we work alongside the city of Kyle to get this project completed as soon as possible,” Ferguson said.
Construction and pre-construction costs are estimated to total $11 million to $12 million, a price tag that includes the building and parking lot as well as related expenses that include a traffic signal on Kyle Parkway and drainage improvements, Ferguson said.
