OSCEOLA — Groundbreaking on a planned $1.1 billion steel mill in northeast Arkansas is expected to take place in late June.

Big River Steel CEO John Correnti told the Blytheville Courier News that he expects to finalize financing in mid-June with a groundbreaking to occur later that month. Construction on the project had been stalled after Nucor Steel challenged Big River's air-quality permit, saying the plant didn't fulfill state and federal anti-pollution requirements

Last month, an administrative law judge rejected Nucor's challenge.

The steel mill is expected to employ 2,000 people during construction and have about 600 permanent employees.
