HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah (AP) — Construction of a Northrop Grumman Corp. facility to be used for upgrading the U.S. military’s ground-based nuclear-tipped intercontinental missiles has begun at Hill Air Force Base in northern Utah.
Officials said during a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday that the facility is expected to deliver 2,500 new jobs to Utah.
