Project Managers deal with huge projects.

There are Project Managers for highways/roads, buildings, airports, etc

He has done all 3 of the above.
In new construction neighborhoods it is common to call the guy on site at the project a "project manager" - HOWEVER, a real project manager like your B-I-L is 10 ten times more educated and experienced than that guy

True project managers exisit in many fields - banking, hospitals etc... By putting constuction in your title people think you are trying to find him a job with a builder

No, I was thinking of HUGE, and wanted to clarify that with the post after your original one. I remember Turner from Maryland. They competed with and then sometimes worked together with, a large engineering and construction firm called Bechtel. My husband worked for Bechtel as an engineering manager in their power division. They lost alot of guys to a small company down here. I think they are looking. I will ask my husband.

I've done business w/Turner in the past. Tough co. to deal with...but great to have on the resume.

Best advice I can give your BIL is to get the word out to all his contacts in the industry. If he's good, his business contacts will try to see what's out there for him. He might have to move sideways or even a step down until things flatten out somewhat...

Main thing is you can't get discouraged. No matter how bad it is out there (and trust me, its terrible overall in Construction here), there ARE companies looking for good people.
