Who pocketed the money?

JUST RELEASED (02-12-18): The President’s plan to rebuild America.

“America has long been a Nation of builders, President Trump told the country January 30 in his first State of the Union Address. “We built the Empire State Building in just 1 year—is it not a disgrace that it can now take 10 years just to get a permit approved for a simple road?”

"He called on leaders of both parties in Congress to come together to deliver the safe, reliable, and modern infrastructure that Americans deserve. Today, he will outline his legislative principles to accomplish just that:

"$200 billion in Federal funds to spur at least $1.5 trillion in infrastructure investments with partners at the state, local, tribal, and private level. New investments in rural America, which has been left behind for too long. Decision-making authority will return to state and local governments. Regulatory barriers that needlessly get in the way of infrastructure projects will be removed. Permitting for infrastructure projects will be streamlined and shortened. America’s workforce will be supported and strengthened.

“We will build gleaming new roads, bridges, highways, railways, and waterways all across our land,” President Trump said. “And we will do it with American heart, and American hands, and American grit.”

Tough task in Illinois, wonder who pocketed the money?

(This does not look like million dollar work to me, with 1950’s style roadside berms? Nope.)
