779 cities of all sizes in all regions of the country, have a total of 18,750 local infrastructure projects that are "ready to go," pending funds.

Last week The U.S. Conference of Mayors released the fourth in its series of reports on infrastructure projects that are "ready to go" in cities across the nation -- projects that meet local infrastructure needs and contribute to local economic development goals, that can be funded quickly through existing federal channels and which could start quickly when funding is received.

The report, says  the introduction, lists a total 779 cities having 18,750 such local infrastructure projects, representing an infrastructure investment of $149,758,339,126 that would be capable of producing an estimated 1,604,371 jobs in 2009 and 2010.

These are the cumulative totals of projects, required funding, and jobs to be created that have been reported in the four surveys of cities conducted by the Conference of Mayors over the past three months.
