US Construction Up Again

The Census Bureau reported on February construction activity April 2 and the data showed a reversal of the recent trend in private/public spending. February’s construction totals reached a record $1.273 trillion (seasonally-adjusted), an increase of 3.1% over February 2017.  The AGC’s Ken Simonson noted that the increase was the result of a 5.5% jump in private-nonresidential spending. Spending declined in 12 of the 13 public construction categories, including the largest – highways and streets – which saw a drop of 0.1% from January and 5.1% from last year.
