In April, ENR Texas & Louisiana will be taking a look at the Top Project Starts in 2018 by total value from across the five-state region of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas.

Pipeline projects and other energy-related jobs are on track to dominate this year's ranking. We're sharing a preliminary list of some of the projects that could potentially be on our final ranking in the April 15 issue.

The list below is not final and is subject to change as additional information becomes available prior to publication of the ranking.

Happen to know about a project that we missed? We're still looking for projects valued over $100 million that began construction during 2018 across our region. Please let us know by dropping me an email!

Also, keep in mind that since this ranking will be ordered according to total project value, those projects that were unable or unwilling to disclose their total project value will not been included.

Circle back with us in April to see how these projects rank!
