What are the most active construction markets in the USA these days?

Add Answer
There are pockets of activity throughout the country on a local level. The general construction marketplace has improved in the last year but only marginally. We are still in for a long ride.

Some markets to consider are New Orleans, Detroit, and Charlotte who have seen some transformation and rebuilding lately.
