GREEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Construction is underway for a new expansion project at Island Park in Green Island.
A ground-breaking ceremony took place at the new 64,000 square-foot facility. It's part of a partnership with BBL Construction and Galesi Group.
There is no word yet on what the building will house, but it officials said it will bring a wide range of jobs.
Green Island Mayor Ellen McNulty Ryan said, "We are an industrial community. Generations of people have made their living here. It has been very good to us and not everyone gets a college education. We need to provide jobs for all those people. It is very unique up here because you have very high paying jobs and laborers."
The project is expected to be completed in the early winter.
