I wonder how well the transportation stimulus projects in your area are going to benefit those mostly in need vis-a-vis unemployment. The AP apparently sees that it is not going very well across the country.  See STIMULUS WATCH: Early road aid leaves out neediest.

Rainier Ave (SR 167)

Rainier Ave South is within State Route SR-167. This project consists in reconfiguration of Rainier Ave S to accommodate Business Access and Transit (BAT) lanes specifically for use by transit, vehicles entering and exiting businesses and for right turn use at intersections. The BAT lanes will extend from S Grady Way to S 3rd St in the northbound direction and S 2nd St to Grady Way S in the southbound direction. The project will also install landscaped medians, rebuild curb/gutter, widen sidewalks, add planted pedestrian buffer between traffic lanes and the sidewalks, add pedestrian scale lighting, install textured and colored pavement at intersections. This project will complete the 0.85 miles corridor between SR-167 and SR-900. Project sponsor is the City of Renton with partnership with Sound Transit, Transportation Improvement Board (TIB) and Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).  ARRA funds $2,000,000. Project sponsored by the City of Renton.

Rainier Ave S (SR 167) Improvements Project - Phase 1: Shattuck Avenue Stormwater Bypass

The Rainier Ave S Improvements Project includes adding Business Access and Transit (BAT) lanes, adding left turn lanes at intersections, widening sidewalks with street landscaping, adding pedestrian scale lighting and landscaped median barriers. Phase 1, the Shattuck Ave S stormdrain project will provide a bypass for surface water draining into the Rainier Ave S pump station. The bypass system will provide a considerable cost savings by avoiding replacement/upgrades to the existing stormwater pump station located on Rainier Ave.
