New Carlisle -- With a $500 million dollar project, new construction is underway on a natural gas energy plant.
The construction will bring over 500 construction jobs to the area over the next two years. The plant is expected to run starting June 2018. It will bring 20 new high-tech jobs to the area.
The plant is being built on 165 acres. "As you can see, a lot that has been built and they've taken advantage of this mild winter, we're ahead of schedule," said Willard Ladd, President of Development Partners.
The big draw of this project, is the jobs now available in the area. "Here in St. Joseph County, we're seeing a really big upswing in good, economic growth and I think we're seeing a lot of things that are going to improve our ways of life right here," said James Gardner, President of St. Joseph Valley Building Trades.
