Construction slowdown has ironic cause

Several island construction projects have been stymied on St. John because the builder can’t find sand. 

Yes, sand.  But not the beach kind.  The kind of sand that is used to make concrete. 

Dave Carlson told the St. John Source he has five Carlson Construction projects on hold because there is no sand.  "It’s never been this bad," he said. 

Carlson is a member of the Island Green Building Association and has been active with the group in trying to blunt massive development projects on St. John.
