Laborers Local 563 and LECET visit Hoffman Concrete roundabout project

Hoffman Concrete, a key subcontractor working on the $7.1 million Trunk Highway 22 Roundabouts in Mankato received a visit and jobsite lunch from Laborers Local 563 representatives and Minnesota LECET in August, 2014. The lunch was put on for approximately 30 Union workers on the project. Hoffman Concrete is a Mankato based Union contractor providing professional construction services including concrete installation and concrete material supply with LIUNA members on this project site.

The project, now complete, was a partnership project with the City of Mankato and Blue Earth County. The Highway 22 intersections at Adams Street and Madison Avenue had previously resulted in the highest crash rating in District 7.
