Infrastructure Burgh... or so I hope

Forbes is reporting on the wish lists submitted to the Obama infrastructure plan by major American cities. Just wondering what we asked for? Are we even one of their 'stimulus cities'?

It's almost too hard to figure where you would put money first here, but the scariest thing to me is the state of the region's locks and dams. And yes, I know about the state of the bridges, sewers, roads and highways among other things. Nonetheless, a major dam failure would be very very painful for the region, and there have been some been some bad omens already. Maybe our request is just delayed in all the holiday mail?

According to this report (warning its big), issued on the 8th, Pittsburgh has requested nothing. The next report is due out on the 19th.

no joke, 607 pages. Philadelphia is asking for $307 million worth of stuff if I understand it.
