TitleClarkson: 1880-2005, Six Generations Building Roads to the Future
AbstractAn advertising special section to the Kansas City Star on the Clarkson Construction Company of Kansas City, Missouri. The company is celebrating its 125th anniversary. It was established in 1880 as a man-and-horse grading contractor. "It has built many of the area's flood-control projects, constructed the interstates that would eventually circumnavigate the region's metroppolitan areas, excavated sites of some of downtown Kansas City's largest buildings, performed the site work for countless area developments and parking facilities and performed asphalt overlays of endless miles of city streets." Lists past projects as well as current ones.
NotesToday Clarkson employees more than 1,200 people as engineers, heavy equipment operators, iron workers, carpenters, cement masons, teamsters and skilled laborers with a payroll of $70 million.
