First Lady Michelle Obama continued her tour of her new neighborhood today with a visit to the Department of Transportation.
"The economic recovery plan is making the largest investment in our nation's infrastructure since the interstate highways were created in the 1950s. It's time," she said. "It will repair and rebuild highways, expand access to public transportation, which we all need; invest in high speed rail, which we all need; and improve our nation's airports.
"So that's why your management, the work that you're doing here in Transportation to manage the investments in the economic recovery plan, is so very important," she added later. "There is a lot of work to do."
