BOISE - Less than six months after allocating funds from the first transportation-revenue increase in nearly two decades, the Idaho Transportation Department is completing the first projects funded with the increase.
A pair of safety-enhancement projects constructing turnbays in north-central Idaho, and a project in south-central Idaho that extended the roadway's lifespan, giving drivers a smoother surface and better ride, were the first to be substantially completed.
The number of unemployed workers with construction experience dropped to the lowest total for September since 2000, as hiring continued to slow despite robust demand for construction, according to an analysis by the Associated General Contractors of America. Association officials cautioned that the hiring slowdown most likely reflects a lack of available workers that could lead to project delays unless more students and workers join the construction sector.
