Thanks to the interactive website created by ConstructConnect, tED magazine has been able to follow the number of delayed construction projects across the United States since the COVID-19 crisis began in mid-March.
Beginning on March 27, tedmag.com reported the Associated General Contractors of America started working with ConstructConnect to provide daily data on construction delays. At that time, the number of delayed projects was 1,488. A little more than one month later, tedmag.com reported that number had increased by more than 2,600, and was at 4,115.
As we approach June, ConstructConnect continues to update the data, and as of Thursday, May 28, the number of delayed construction projects in the U.S. has now topped 5,000, and currently sits at 5,306.
According to the data on the website, states with the most delayed projects are California (464), New York (462), Texas (389), Florida (328), Pennsylvania (285), and North Carolina (281). All states have re-opened “non-essential” construction, provided job sites maintain the safety of workers.
The ConstructConnect website on delayed projects is updated daily.
