                                Construction jobs are expected to number 38,800 this year — a 10.9 percent increase over 35,000 last year. Current construction work on Oahu includes spaces below TJ Maxx at Ward Villages. Tours were given to the space that is still under construction. One of the walkways leads to what will be Salvage Public, on the left, and Big Island Delights on the right.

Construction will grow more slowly in 2018, UH says
