Construction spending patterns vary among public and private segments. Which segment do you think will show the most promise this year?


Hyperloop One and design firm Bjarke Ingels Group recently unveiled more detailed plans for the Hyperloop, a hybrid mass-transit system that would combine high-speed transporters with smaller, autonomous vehicles, being considered in the United Arab Emirates. Is the Hyperloop the future of transit?
