Based on what the article actually said:
"Complete individual projects" sound like many of the city based rail projects across the country. This, as SouthernDemocrat stated is actually a good idea. Much of the congestion on our roads is within cities, not on across the country highways.
"Corridor programs" is a bit sketch to say much about. A North Eastern corridor doesn't sound like a bad idea. But LA to Chicago is retarded (not to mention it would take hours).
