Ah. I was looking at the way in the middle which has the text displayed. 
Generally you want water to render over landuse. I'm not sure that 
construction should be an exception, since a pond in the middle of a 
construction site should be displayed. Perhaps it would be better if 
landuse=construction were like landuse=military.

Is the layer=1 appropriate? The bridge is above the water, but the 
construction site presumably exists in the water as well as on the 
bridge, and is drawn to include area around the bridge.
