FromDC2Iowa: Infrastructure insights

Excerpted from this post at FromDC2Iowa

Lessons from Iowa City's Crumbling Infrastructure ... With our President
talking about spending billions on "infrastructure," I thought it
might be useful to bring this concept "FromDC2Iowa." But how? What
might be an Iowa City-sized example of an "infrastructure" in need of
repair? And what lessons might it hold for our current global economic
collapse? Walking to town the other day, coming round and down the
circular walkway across Riverside Drive to the Burlington Street
bridge, I noticed some chunks of concrete and rust in a pile on the
walkway. Curious as to where it might have come from, I looked up and
saw: Apparently the steel used to hold the concrete together was
beginning to rust through.
