Buffalo- The Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation was hoping the creation of new replica canals at the old memorial auditorium site would be finished for this fall.

But apparent issues with Dipizio Construction, who have been terminated from the job-- seemed to hold the $23 million dollar project up.

Officials say the project probably won't be complete until spring or summer of next year.

Officials from the ECHDC were unavailable for comment today.

An attorney for Dipizio Construction did tell us that his clients are in the midst of an intense 8 figure litigation for money damages.
