Infrastructure: What Does It Mean?

=============================================== n 1: the basic structure or features of a system or organization [syn: substructure] 2: the stock of basic facilities and capital equipment needed for the functioning of a country or area; "the industrial base of Japan" [syn: base] -- From WordNet (r) 2.0 ===============================================
That's the Dictionary talking, a simpler explaination would be: "Putting shovels in the ground to build or repair bridges, roads and buildings that have been neglected too long..." Yesterday on the History Channel, I saw another version of the meaning of Infrastructure:

The Building of the Alcan Highway in 1942.

Alcon Highway was 1,522 mile long Alaskan Highway and took 11,000 soldiers to build.

7 regiments of soldiers.
of the US Army personnel, 1/3 were black.

Distance from Washington DC to Denver Colorado.
