Construction Spending Hits Six-Year High

Spending on U.S. construction projects is at its highest point since the economic downturn year of 2008, according to the Associated General Contractors of America, reaching $961 billion.

Another encouraging sign: Public construction grew for the first time since 2009.

“For the first time in nearly a decade there was growth in all three major construction segments — public, private nonresidential and residential,” said Ken Simonson, the association’s chief economist. “If the president and Congress can work out a way to pay for long-term investments in our aging infrastructure, there is a good chance this pattern will repeat in 2015.”
