With massive construction efforts underway on Phase I of construction on the Foxconn project site, the Racine Journal Times reports that local companies are seeing expanded business opportunities as a result.
"The enormity of scale of the project is not easily conveyed," said Adam Jelen, Senior Vice President and Project Principal for M+W | Gilbane. "Crews are currently depositing about 100 to 200 dump truckloads of aggregate, or gravel, daily."
