ROAD JOBS
(2007-07-09)
(wgvu) -
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Some companies that build highways in the
state say they are laying off workers.
A weak Michigan economy in part has left less money available to
fund infrastructure projects.
Slagter Construction is a Grand Rapids-based road builder. It
says it's cut its work force to 66 from 102 in the past five years
-- and plans to open a Florida office for the first time.
State funding for highway construction and maintenance is
expected to drop 24 percent over the next four years -- to
one-point-two-three (B) billion dollars in 2011 from
one-point-six-two (B) billion dollars this year.
