Every year, ENR Texas & Louisiana publishes the Top Project Starts from the previous year, ranked by construction cost, across the five-state region of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas.

Below, you’ll find a preliminary list of some of the projects (in alphabetical order) that may be included on our final ranking of the largest project starts. The full, ranked list will be published in the April 6 issue.

The list below is not final and is subject to change as additional information becomes available before publication.

Did we miss a project that you know about or your firm is involved in? Please let us know via email. We’re still looking for projects valued over $100 million that began construction during calendar year 2019 across the region.

Also, keep in mind that since this ranking will be ordered according to construction costs, projects where costs are confidential will not be included.

Be sure to check back in April to see the final ranking!
