Shovel-ready rail projects

My old friend Hiram Wurf has an absolutely awesome Google Map showing which projects around the country are "shovel ready" once the infrastructure stimulus bill passes. First, the map:

Just a great example of how to use a Google tool to organize a set of data. Hiram used My Maps to build the map, and he told me this morning that a person testifying to the House Rail Subcommittee next week will be using this map (among other pieces of info) to show what can be done.

Kudos, Hiram. Nice work!
