A new building, a new director and a renewed focus on transportation funding marked the early years of the new millennium. The long-awaited North Spokane Corridor, built predominantly by AGC members, broke ground and the first drivable section opened to the public during this decade. The recession in the mid-2000’s hit the construction industry hard as companies were forced to lay off employees, many of which never came back to the industry, hampering recovery.
