In the rural eastern corner of the Czech Republic, residents of Frýdek Místek thought they were finally close to getting the new road they craved for 14 years. Plans were in place to spend an estimated USD 234 million on a highway bypass for the 45,000 trucks and cars that travel each day through the 700-year-old town. The project, approved locally in 1996 and scheduled to start in less than two years, is now one of dozens in eastern Europe that may be delayed because of budgetary constraints.
