Lowes Update

Some exterior walls are now up for a building that will soon house more than 500 new workers. Construction on the new Lowes distribution center in southwest Rockford is right on schedule.

According to the project manager, workers will move the structural steel into the building in the coming weeks.

The facility will be three times the size of the UPS building at the Chicago Rockford airport. It should be complete by the beginning of next year.
