From trail construction to road and building repairs Jackson County couldn’t get much done without the dedication of the members of the construction industry.

To celebrate the construction industry’s importance to infrastructure and the economyI Build America, an organization dedicated to promoting the value of the construction industry, declared September 14-18, 2020 as the third annual Construction Appreciation Week.

The construction industry has more than 680,000 employers with seven million employees and creates $1.3 billion worth of structures each year, according to the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC). Construction Appreciation Week aims to inspire a national conversation about construction and show how it enhances lives in America.

The construction industry accounts for more than 10-percent of the American workforce, and with the rise of more technically complicated projects, construction workers are accepting more responsibilities than ever before.

Jackson County almost always has at least one construction project in progress. At the present time those projects include the building of phase two of the Rock Island Trail, repairs to the Jackson County Courthouse in Kansas City and construction of maintenance facilities in the Parks + Rec Department.
