Will there be any local benefit from construction?
Costs for materials and equipment bought in or brought into Oregon are estimated to be approximately $464 million.
During construction approximately $33 million would be spent on local contracted services such as logging, hauling and other professional services.
Estimated local expenditures include approximately:
$47.4 million by non-local workers for housing, expenses, etc
$151.6 million in local worker compensation
$108.4 million on construction materials
The total construction spending in Oregon and Washington as a result of the combined Jordan Cove and Pacific Connector projects would average $1.7 billion annually over a four year construction period.
As a result the GDP of Oregon and Washington would be approximately $434.6 million higher during each year of construction.
On average Oregon and Washington could experience over 3,000 well-paying jobs over the four years and labor income would be $330 million higher.
