Construction Forecast: Rail Construction Will Spur Industry Pick-Up

Posted February 4, 2011 | Categories: Forecasts, Hawaii's Economy

Assuming no additional delays, the rail project will lead to a sharp pick-up in construction beginning later this year, and the construction job base will approach its 2007 peak level by 2015. Expansive government infrastructure spending will amplify what was already a building outlook that favors Oahu relative to the Neighbor Island economies.
