0 degrees? Not enough to stop construction at Costco, Stadium bridges
Frigid temperatures weren't enough to stop two of the biggest construction projects in the Ann Arbor area this morning.

Costco, which has hired Seattle-based contractor Jackson Dean to construct 148,000-square-foot near the corner of South State and Ellsworth and behind the Tyner Furniture store, has yet to comment publicly on the project except to say that the store would open in the summer.
The store has been taking shape fast — perhaps accelerated by generally excellent weather conditions so far this winter. The steel structure of the store has been visible for more than a month — and now crews are stacking bricks.
The $22.8 million Stadium bridges construction project began in November and is expected to be completed in May 2013. The project will replace two decrepit bridges.
