JFX work is all done--ahead of schedule

The mayor's office announced that the work shoring up  the Jones Falls Expressway was completed ahead of schedule, and all lanes are now open.Here's the release. The work got underway Friday, April 13th and at the time was expected to take until . . . about now. From the Transportation Department's previous release (emphasis ours):

Once the clo­sures are imple­mented, they will remain in effect until con­struc­tion is com­plete, which is expected to take up to six to eight weeks. How­ever, the dura­tion of con­struc­tion is uncer­tain at this time, and the lane clo­sures could extend beyond this period.
Presumably, a hard schedule was set later and then they beat it.Yay, highway construction workers!
