Construction workers are benefiting from an uptick in projects in Buffalo, N.Y., and the surrounding area. "What is on the books is unprecedented for the next couple of years, so it’s a very good time in the construction industry in Western New York," said Sam Capitano, business manager for Laborers Local 210. Among the projects underway are a $1 billion project to rebuild public schools in Buffalo, the Harbor Center project in downtown Buffalo and highway and bridge work.
