Construction Spending On The Rise

The U.S. construction industry saw an increase in spending for the first time in four months — the biggest improvement since April 2010.

In March, construction spending grew 1.4 percent to $768.9 billion.

With an increase in home remodeling activity outpacing declines in apartments and single-family homes, residential construction expenditures rose 2.6 percent. Outlays for nonresidential projects, meanwhile, climbed 1.6 percent due to robust spending for hotel, office, and industrial construction.
