If you’re looking for work, there are jobs to be had in the construction industry. Dave Siegel, the executive director of the Builders Association of the Twin Cities, says they’re seeing a comeback after several years of contraction.
If you’ve driven through the Twin Cities lately, you’ve probably noticed some major construction projects — and we’re not talking road construction. Some large-scale buildings are in the works. Twin Cities Premium Outlets near Highway 13 and Highway 77 in Eagan is one of the projects. It’s set to open in August, and has provided jobs to 400 construction workers.
A 23-year-old man pleaded guilty to one count of careless driving Wednesday and was sentenced to 30 days in jail for a crash that killed two construction workers on Interstate 35W.
The wives of two construction killed on Interstate 35W thought they’d get closure Wednesday. Instead, they learned the man accused of crashing into their husbands wants to go to trial.
