About 18 construction projects currently are under way in the city of Beloit, which officials say is more than normal post-recession.
The projects are commercial, industrial and institutional, and total more than $133 million in renovations and construction. Andrew Janke, executive director of the Greater Beloit Economic Development Corporation, said the work is positive even while the city and surrounding communities are recovering from slow economic activity.
“It definitely represents more than average for commercial activity in the city,” he said.
In addition to the 18 projects, three new construction projects are expected to break ground this fall.
