Vice President Biden Visits Brooklyn Bridge To Highlight Recovery Act

Vice President Joe Biden visited the city Wednesday to help mark the start of the Brooklyn Bridge rehabilitation project which is partially funded by the economic recovery act.
Biden discussed the $508 million makeover alongside Mayor Michael Bloomberg on the Manhattan-side of the bridge.
The project, which should be completed by 2014, involves repainting the bridge and expanding approach ramps to improve traffic flow. About 150 jobs will be created by this project, including 44 pre-existing jobs.
"Here's the deal. This and the Golden Gate Bridge are the two most recognized bridges in the entire United States of America, among the two most recognized bridges in the world. To be here, to be able to be part of helping restore this iconic bridge is a pretty neat thing," said Biden. "This project symbolizes nearly 1,200 bridge projects that are underway under the American Reinvestment Act."

Wonder how much he got conned into paying for it??
(with our money, of course..)
4,999,894 to go. Also,add 500,000 when the census ends!
I’m glad that it was “neat”. I guess that’s a little better than a “BFD”.
Joe always does have a big shovel ready doesn’t he and it’s always full of something.
The right side? The exit side?
