What's the situation with America's ports? How are the freeways in Alabama doing? Is there a long-term solution to the problems with freight train "logjams" in Chicago? All these questions are answered, courtesy of PBS's program, "Blueprint America". The program is sponsored by The Rockefeller Foundation, and many PBS shows contribute programming to this series, including NOW, The News Hour with Jim Lehrer, and American Public Media. First-time visitors can browse through the latest offerings by geography, topic, or program. After viewing a program or two, they may wish to add their own comments via the "tags" option. Recent programs have included a report on "zombie highways" in Alabama, federal transportation law, and urban gridlock. Also, users may wish to sign up for the "Infrastructure News Feed" and take a look at their blogroll.
