Current Trends in the Construction Industry [Infographic]

The construction industry is on the rebound in a post-recession environment, as evidenced by an unemployment rate of 8.9 percent, an 11 percent decrease since 2010. The positive trend should continue, as President Obama budgeted $199 billion to be invested in highway and road construction over the next four years.  In addition, these funds will be used to create the “Fix-it-First” program designed to repair structurally deficient bridges throughout the nation.  An increase in municipal infrastructure projects also is on the horizon due to the aging infrastructure of sewage and water disposal.
