The lingering recession may be a bear for companies and consumers, but it's been bullish for highways in Orange County and across California. With work in the private sector drying up, construction firms have been aggressively vying for contracts to build roads and freeways. The result has been bids that are far lower than in years past. The savings should mean that highway projects that might have been relegated to the shelf will be built faster.
