The Wabasha St. Green Stairs counts as a "bridge", too. We're getting stimulus funds to replace it because it's "shovel-ready". That's the whole reason for the "stimulus" thing.

Doesn't this kind of contradict the Obama admin's claim that the "stimulus" package wasn't intended to kick in for two years? Seems to me you could anything "shovel ready" in two years.
