Regional commercial construction projects topped 1,603 last month, the second-highest monthly total in the 74-year history of the Mid Atlantic BX, a trade association that tracks projects in Delaware, New Jersey, northern Maryland and Pennsylvania.
The highest monthly total was 1,619 in March 2011.
Last year’s May total was 1,356, according to Mid Atlantic BX.
Through June 8, the association reported 6,602 new projects for the year. Association construction project analysts search the region for public and private nonresidential projects.
