18,000 proposed infrastructure projects: Reed Construction Data and the Economic Recovery Plan

Jan 27, 2009 - Donna Cahan

Reed Construction Data is releasing a report of over 18,000 proposed infrastructure projects across the nation that have been tagged as “ready to go” by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Projects in this report are said to meet local infrastructure needs, contribute to local economic development goals and have the ability to be funded quickly through existing federal channels. Projects have not been validated by Reed Construction Data and are released with an understanding that funding has not yet been approved.


This collection of projects is a result of four surveys of U.S. cities conducted by the Conference of Mayors over the past three months. The status of these projects has not yet been established, but Reed wants to make you aware of what has been proposed in your area.


These efforts were made possible by The United States Conference of Mayors MainStreet Economic Recovery Plan. The Conference is striving to quickly create jobs in metro areas; improve the infrastructure that the private sector needs to succeed; help the businesses of Main Street America; and produce lasting economic and environmental benefits for the nation. Download a complete overview of the MainStreet Economic Recovery Plan.
