Public projects ranging from roadways to pipelines to parks to power plants kept cranes and backhoes moving in the Midwest last year, according to a preliminary compilation of the largest projects to break ground in the region in 2013. Large hospital and university projects don't figure as prominently this year, nor do large-scale residential projects. They're there – but but not as large or as many.

So swings the pendulum. ENR Midwest will publish a ranked listing of last year's Top Construction Starts on March 24. To compile the list, we've not only referenced data from McGraw-Hill Construction's Dodge, but our ongoing coverage of projects in the region.

To ensure the list is as complete as possible, we invite you to submit notable regional projects that broke ground in 2013 to

We're particularly interested in projects in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. In addition to the project's name, please indicate its location, construction cost, construction start date (month/year), owner and builder, as well as the project's projected finish date. Please submit the information no later than March 1.
