DALLAS (Dallas Morning News)
– Dallas added more construction jobs than any other city in the country from
May 2010 to May 2011 according to Contractors of America.

Construction jobs increased by 5,600 during that period — about a 5
percent increase.

Apartments and large public sector projects provided a large portion of the
gains, with single-family housing remaining low in job creation.

Eighteen other Texas metro areas had construction job increases as
well, including Houston, which had the fourth largest increase.
