U.S. construction pace up from spring fall

Washington, D.C

U.S. construction spending rebounded in June after a tiny drop in May and a small increase in April, Ken Simonson, chief economist for The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) says.

“In all three months, private residential construction dropped sharply-1.0 per cent in June-while private non residential and public construction spending increased,” Simonson said commenting on a report from the U.S. Census Bureau. “In June, these categories rose 2.7 and 0.8 percent respectively. I expect those trends to continue: falling residential spending, very strong private nonresidential and somewhat positive public spending. The ‘top line’ number will depend on which sector has the biggest change each month.”
