Employees building a new stadium for the San Francisco 49ers are returning to the job, two days after an elevator mechanic was killed in a workplace accident.

The San Jose Mercury News reports the companies building Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara say that more than 1,000 employees will resume work Thursday morning.

The stadium is about 40 percent finished.

A veteran elevator mechanic, 63-year-old Donald White, died Tuesday when he was struck by a counterweight while working in a shaft at the stadium.
