This area of Texas has the custom of paying contruction workers a bonus for completing the work as quickly as possible. For that reason (and possibly because a lot of the construction workers are Hispanic) one almost never hears about time over-runs. Stadiums, homes and roads - all are built very quickly and efficently.
They also have the interesting and helpful custom and building schools before they are needed.Related to:
