A new study by economic consultant Washington Economics Group estimates that transportation investments by the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority will generate revenue and jobs for the construction industry, one of the sectors most affected by the current economic turmoil. The authority will award an estimated $184 million in construction contracts by the end of this year, which will generate 2,658 new jobs, two-thirds of them in the construction sector.
