It seems that the cost of construction is increasing. I know it happens with an increase of materials, labor, etc., but it seems lately it has gone up incredibly high.
Could it be because contractors are spending more time then they want doing trail construction projects instead of the jobs they want to do & make more money on, like roadways, etc. so they have increased the costs? Or do you think it is just the "natural" progression of the increase of things like trail construction? Or do you think it is because of something else?
Or am I way off base here & the costs are actually not that bad at all & have hardly increased?
Here are some links showing the costs of current & proposed projects:
