the PR this evening is all but optimistic. Though we all know and though it might be priced in, the CEO sounds pessimistic about the general economic climate. And he still believes necessarily infrastructural investments will be postponed further.

"We are not through the roughest part of the storm yet, but we are finding the right price points and beginning to build backlog for 2012," said Mike Pearson, Orion Marine Group's President and Chief Executive Officer. "As we have said before, 2011 is a challenging year but we are working hard to control cost, price effectively, and explore complementary areas for growth."
