REYNOLDS, Ind. (WLFI) - The Magnetation project is well underway after about 5 months of construction.
"The investment is the largest that we've ever seen in White County," White County economic development president Randy Mitchell said. "It translates into them spending about $1 million dollars a day."
Mitchell said thanks to the weather crews have been able to work non-stop this summer.
Currently, crews are working on pouring more than 72,000 cubic yards of concrete.
"Which is twice the amount of concrete that went into Lucas Oil Stadium," Mitchell said. "Buildings are going to start being constructed and we're going to see Reynolds have a skyline here pretty soon."
The town of Reynolds will supply Magnetation with water and sewage services, costing more than $1 million.
"The Monticello Redevelopment Commission is funding that through a loan from White County, which will be paid back out of the TIF district. That is the plan right now," Mitchell said.
The sewer and water infrastructure is set to be complete in April, nearly a year after construction started.
"The thing that White County has had to try to get used to is how to develop traffic patterns for 250, swelling to 400 contractors everyday," Mitchell said.
Mitchell said area businesses have been able to manage the crowds, and are looking forward to the multi-million dollar investment that will bring about 150 jobs to White County late next year.
