More on infrastructure

USA Today weighs in on infrastructure problems in the USA, including mentions of problems at Ohio River locks and dams.

This is one of several articles I've seen in recent months that talk about the need to rebuild or rehabilitate the navigation infrastructure on the inland waterways, especially the Ohio River. But this stuff is out of sight of the public, and having all that 9/11 security that keeps people away from this infrastructure keeps it out of the public mind. So for now, navigation infrastructure is like the weather. A lot of people talk about it, but no one does anything about it.
