Hotel construction project gets new life

BROOKHAVEN — A stalled hotel construction project in Brookhaven has come back to life.

Developer Jackie’s International Inc. obtained a building permit last month to renew work on a proposed Holiday Inn Express near Interstate 55.

Construction has moved forward intermittently since then.
