NEW ALBANY, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC and ONN) – It’s no surprise that Ohio’s biggest-ever economic development project would also be the biggest construction detail ever.

So where do we find all the needed workers?

Intel says 7000 people will be needed to take the project from ground up in New Albany near Columbus, even as other big central Ohio construction projects are underway.

But Intel says it is confident it will find the needed workers.
