LOUISVILLE, Jul. 20, 2016 — Construction for the expansion of the Kentucky International Convention Center begins August 17. A WDRB News report includes animation by Hunt Construction Group detailing the plans for construction. Plans call for 20 percent of all “workforce hours” to be done by minority-owned firms, while women-owned businesses would perform five percent. In all, the project hopes that Louisville-area residents account for 75 percent of the work – with 60 percent done by people who live in Jefferson County.
